Christian Bale Up For Another Batman Film

This may not come as a huge surprise but it does come straight from the horse's mouth: Christian Bale , talking to Empire last month, said that The Dark Knight Rises will be his last Batman movie...probably. "All I know is the likelihood that this will be the last one," says the star. " Well, I wouldn't say definitely . If Chris goes, 'Hey, I've got another story I think could be interesting,' then yeah, great, I'd go do that . I always assumed it would be three, but I could be wrong. I don't know if there's something wrong with me, but I don't feel any pressure." Nolan's on record as saying that the next film will be the last chapter in his Batman franchise, so we're going to assume that's it, but hey! It's nice that Bale isn't locking anything out.

Chuck's Josh Schwartz To Direct Fun Size

Josh Schwartz (co-created  NBC's Chuck )  will make his feature directing debut with Fun Size , a teen comedy that his Fake Empire shingle is developing for Paramount. Read my Exclusive interview with him Here about Chuck. Paramount picked up the spec script by Colbert Report scribe Max Werner in May 2010. And while several projects are vying for Schwartz's attention as a director, including the coming-of-age drama Looking for Alaska , he fell hard for the comedic script, which centers on a sarcastic teenage girl who is forced to take her little brother trick-or-treating on Halloween, then loses him and must find him before their mother finds out. A sticking point had been timing. Paramount was unsure if the movie should be made in time for this Halloween or Halloween 2012. The studio has now made the decision to go for this year, so the movie, while still not officially greenlighted, according to the studio, is shooting for a late spring start in St. Louis. Lis Rowin
