There’s a lot of great Inception material this week, thanks primarily to the DVD and Blu-ray which just hit shelves. But the book Inception: The Shooting Script has been around for a bit, and if you haven’t had a look, there are a couple aspects that make it wortwhile. Beyond the script there’s an interview with Christopher Nolan conducted by his brother Jonathan Nolan. And you’ll also find the map Chrisopher Nolan drew to delineate the film’s dream layers. That has been scanned, and you can find it below. Read More »

We’d have thought the casting search for Zack Snyder‘s Superman had already begun, but now it is evidently on. So, actors aged 28-32 who aren’t quite discovered yet, or who maybe have a budding TV career, this is the time to source some blue tights. In other words: sorry, fans of Jon Hamm, but this is a role for another actor. A few more details are after the break. Read More »
We have yet to see what a Christopher Nolan-less script from Jonathan Nolan looks like, but the odds that we’ll see one soon are looking good. He’s still got his screenplay for Intersellar, set to be directed by Steven Spielberg, in the pipeline, but who knows when Spielberg will get around to making that. The more viable option for now is Hell and Gone, which is “a Titanic-like historical tragedy and love story revolving around the Great Chicago Fire”. Warner Bros. is setting that up, and they have J Blakeson, the writer and director of the critically lauded The Disappearance of Alice Creed, in negotiations to direct. Read More »
Just like with the report we had yesterday, keep this one filed under rumor. But Moviehole says they’ve been talking to a source at WB who says that the notion of a Jonathan Nolan-directed Superman is well-founded. Read More »
Seems like there have been far more superhero movie rumors than normal in the run-up to this year’s Comic Con. Hopefully many of these will be addressed in some manner within the next couple weeks, but in the meantime take anything boldly marked ‘rumor’ as merely a way to kickstart conversation. So, after the break, you can start to talk about the idea of Jonathan Nolan directing Superman and Elena Satine playing Mary Jane Watson in Spider-Man. Read More »
Just hours ago, I talked about the Jackie O biopic script that has Steven Spielberg as an advocate, and likely as a producer. We’ve filled a lot of page space talking about Spielberg’s producing projects as he’s been slow to set up a directorial follow-up to his Tintin film, still in a long post-production process, but none have yet come to fruition.
But now there is slight reason to suspect that Spielberg’s long-rumored film Interstellar, scripted by Jonathan Nolan, may finally be in the cards. Don’t get too excited about this happening right now, but read on for the reasons behind the speculation. Read More »
Remember when DC Entertainment president Diane Nelson denied that Christopher Nolan was overseeing the new Superman film? It’s stories like this that make the movie rumor business so sketchy, because an official denial doesn’t always mean that something isn’t true. We know now that Nolan is overseeing Superman for WB as David Goyer writes the script based on a story by Nolan and Goyer. We know this because Nolan is talking about it. The director promises good things for the next Superman, and his wife, producer Emma Thomas, denies a few other recent rumors.
Meanwhile, Jonathan Nolan is ‘now doing the hard work’ on a script for Batman 3, based on a story by Christopher Nolan and Goyer. Read More »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
I’m sure quite a few people have called for something like this in discussions about what Warner Bros. should do to make Superman work on the big screen: the studio is reportedly turning to Christopher Nolan to act as a “godfather” to help shepherd development of a new Superman film. Before we go further, at this point Nolan is not writing, and is not directing. Rather, Nolan would play more of a mentor’s role to help the film get moving. In other words, WB wants him to communicate some of the methods he used to reinvent Batman on film to help Superman get off the ground in time for Warners to exploit the character before the rights go back to the Siegel and Shuster families.
