James Cameron has his eyes on the director’s chair and it’s not for Avatar 2! The Batman franchise will be getting a new director and Variety has confirmed it’s James Cameron! Christopher Nolan clearly doesn’t want to continue the Batman trilogy (Batman Begins, The Dark Knight) of movies since he’s already tackled the material twice. I would be afraid to tackle something after The Dark Knight too! But Cameron is willing to give it a shot. It stinks Nolan isn’t going to direct this one but I think James Cameron is a perfect choice for this! Plus we get to see Batman kicking some ass in 3D!
Variety confirms the rumor that James Cameron, director of Avatar, Titanic, Terminator, and many other blockbusters will be directing the next installment of the Batman series. Christopher Nolan is in the middle of directing Inception with Leonardo DiCaprio, and will not have enough time to start writing the screenplay to Batman 3. Cameron is set to direct & write the movie, and will be filming with IMAX cameras and in 3D as well. Was there any doubt he would not film this in 3D? The film is forecast to come out in July 2011, and will star Christian Bale, Gary Oldman and Michael Caine.
Can’t wait to see this one!
