Dark Knight Director Christopher Nolan Is Suing Past And Present Agencies Over Commission!

Filed under: Legal Matters

Christopher Nolan is the LAST person in Hollywood we ever expected to get into greedy legal dramz over money.

Fortunately, the Dark Knight Rises director's image is safe because he's not suing for any money. He's just suing to be left alone!

The blockbuster filmmaker and his producer/wife, Emma Thomas, filed a lawsuit in El Lay on Thursday to ask courts to decide a monetary conflict between CAA — Nolan's former agency — and his current agency, WME.

WME wants commission from movies that were initially brought into the studio system by CAA, while the latter still says it's owed money from those movies as well.

Nolan and Thomas are willing to pay whoever is legally owed the money, but just want to get out of the conflict they are stuck in the middle of.

Geez. This is, like, the nicest lawsuit ever! LOLz!

Warner Bros To Reboot Batman Franchise After The Dark Knight Rises!

batman to get reboot treatment

And they'll be bringing back Batman & Robin's Joel Schumacher to helm the Batman reboot!!! JK!

Schumacher may not be returning, but then again neither will Christopher Nolan as director, or Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne, because after The Dark Knight Rises hits theaters, Warner Bros will be completely rebooting the Batman franchise.

Here's what WB chief Jeff Robinov had to say about it:

“We have the third Batman, but then we’ll have to reinvent Batman…Chris Nolan and [producing partner and wife] Emma Thomas will be producing it, so it will be a conversation with them about what the next phase is.”

Well at least Christopher Nolan will be involved on SOME level. That makes us feel a bit better about it.

Guess we'll see who they bring in to direct. How about they go the comedy route and bring in Judd Apatow for this one? LOLz.

We're thinking James Franco as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Harold Ramis as Alfred, Leslie Mann as Bruce's love interest, and Seth Rogen Jason Segel Jay Baruchel Jonah Hill as the new Joker!

And hey…if they want to stay conventional for this reboot, that's fine! They can bring in Apatow when they reboot the franchise again in 2020.

Who do U think they should bring in to direct and star in the Batman reboot?
