LA Times lyckades fånga upp Christopher Nolan på Scream awards och ställde frågor om hur han hanterar The Dark Knights ofattbara famgång, kommande projekt och en tredje Batman-film.
Jag har saxat ut några bra bitar här nedan och om du läsa hela intervjun som är den första av tre så klickar du här.
Well ?? let me think how to put this. There are two things to be said. One is the emphasis on story. What?s the story? Is there a story that?s going to keep me emotionally invested for the couple of years that it will take to make another one? That?s the overriding question. On a more superficial level, I have to ask the question: How many good third movies in a franchise can people name? [Laughs.] At the same time, in taking on the second one, we had the challenge of trying to make a great second movie, and there haven?t been too many of those either. It?s all about the story really. If the story is there, everything is possible. I hope that was a suitably slippery answer.??
On one hand, yeah, there is a certain feeling to do [something smaller]. After ?Batman Begins,?? I certainly felt like taking on something smaller, but one of the things I got such a thrill from on ?The Dark Knight?? was shooting on Imax and creating that massive scale and achieving that larger-than-life quality. So that?s a lot of fun. I?m drawn in both directions now. So maybe what I need to do next is a very intimate, small story that happens to be photographed on a ridiculously large scale. Or vice versa [laughs].
