Christopher Nolan to Call It Quits After ‘The Dark Knight Rises’

Chris Nolan has announced “The Dark Knight Rises” will be his last Batman movie for the franchise.  This will mark Nolan’s third and final film with the Caped Crusader.  He recently chatted with Entertainment Weekly, where he expressed his genuine enthusiasm for the project.

Here is what he had to say:

“I feel very glad that I’m doing another Batman film. I think it would have been daunting to sit down and write an original script after Inception. I love working within the realm and rules of our Batman world. It’s kind of nice to have someplace to go that I’m super-excited about. I must say that I’m glad – I’m very, very glad – to be embarking on the last chapter of our Batman saga without any sense of obligation or duty to the studio. They did very well with Inception. So I’m able to go into finishing our story in a very enthusiastic way”

”The Dark Knight Rises” is due in theaters on July 20th, 2012.
