Heath Ledger will NOT be in The Dark Knight Rises
|NEWS - MOVIE NEWS|
No resurrection for the much-missed actor in the next Batman film...
Apparently, Christopher Nolan is out to debunk rumors that he will use unused footage of Heath Ledger’s performance from The Dark Knight in his next – and last – Batman outing, The Dark Knight Rises. Speaking to Thompson On Hollywood, we hear the truth, it seems:
"Nolan, bearded and affable, explained that he’s scrambling to finish the script for The Dark Knight Rises, his third Batman movie, which he’s writing in collaboration with his brother Jonathan, mostly from his oceanfront abode in the Paradise Cove trailer park in Malibu. The script is due in January for a July release. But he wouldn’t say what the story’s about or who the villain is, other than to confirm that Inception’s Tom Hardy will play “a key role, not saying good or bad,” and to shoot down reports that he’ll resurrect The Joker by including unused footage of Heath Ledger’s performance in the previous chapter. “That’s all wrong,” said the writer-director, who’s also producing the next Superman movie, for Zack Snyder to direct."
The Dark Knight Rises is scheduled for a July 20, 2012 release.
