‘Inception’ Director Chris Nolan Planning ‘Batman 3′ For 2012, Still In The Script Phase Now

I’m going to level with you: “Inception” can’t hit theaters soon enough. Chris Nolan is one of the most inventive filmmakers working today and the July 16 release is his first original effort since “Memento” in 2000 (“The Prestige” and “Insomnia” are both adaptations). That said, he’s done great work with the Batman character and many are looking forward to seeing how he follows up 2008 hit, “The Dark Knight.” In the below video, MTV’s Josh Horowitz gets Nolan to set the record straight on where things are at and where they’re heading.
