Christopher Nolan om Batman 3

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].

Who ya gonna call?

Rykten om en 3:e Ghostbusters-film har florerat i filmvärlden ett par år nu utan någon riktig utveckling. Men nu verkar projektet, som haft namnet Hellbent: Ghostbusters Go To Hell, vara i rullning. Bill Murray ska ha skrivit på för att återigen spela Peter Venkman, eller, rösten till Peter Venkman. Ja, rösten. Filmen ska tydligen vara helt dataanimerad. Det nämns dock inget om att Harold Ramis, Ernie Hudson eller Ivan Reitman kommer att medverka. Dan Akroyd yppade nyheten under en intervju med en radistation och sade bland annat det här:

We go to the hell side of Manhattan, downtown, Foley Square. It’s all where the cops are — they are all blue minotaurs. Central Park is this huge peat mine with green demons there, surrounded by black onyx thousand-foot high apartment buildings with classic red devils, very wealthy. We go and visit a Donald Trump-like character who is Mr. Sifler. Luke Sifler. Lu-cifer. So we meet the devil in it. Now, it won’t happen as a live-action, because Billy will not come on in the live-action stage anymore for it, but he will voice his part and we’re looking to do it as a CGI-animated project. It lives. It lives today. Last year it didn’t. This year it lives. With CGI animation and the way these cartoons are done, we can do everything I ever wrote in that script for much less money.

Hur mycket jag än gillade de två första filmerna så vet jag inte hur sugen jag är på ännu en uppföljare. Vad säger ni, verkar det vara något att hänga i granen? Jag är skeptisk…
