With The Dark Knight breaking sales records and still wowing audiences months later, one might think that director Christopher Nolan might be interested in using his Hollywood clout to branch out into the world of video game development. If prolific directors such as Steven Spielberg can do it, why not Nolan? Well, put that thought right out of your mind. It's not going to happen anytime soon. I was watching last night as the director took part in a live commentary for The Dark Knight via the Blu-ray version's online interactive commentary feature. Viewers could send questions to Nolan as the movie played, and when asked if he had an interest in working in the world of video games, the director declined citing a lack of available time. Also, don't believe any wacky Batman 3 casting or story rumors you may hear or read. He says there's no truth to any of them since they have yet to develop a story or even sign a deal to make another Batman film (although of course there's interest). Relax, my friends. Eddie Murphy is not set to play the Riddler. You can trust me on that one. I'm a man of my word.
Personally, I'm holding out for David "The Doctor" Tennant for that role.
