The Dark Knight Rises, Warner Bros.
In the latest issue of Empire Magazine, the creators of 'The Dark Knight Rises' state their intention of giving "The Dark Knight Rises' a definitive ending and completing the Batman trilogy.
Jonathan Nolan, Christopher Nolan's brother and co-writer, told Empire:
"It's the right way to end it — to blow the whole thing up! It's better than trying to spin the thing out indefinitely and make it into the Bond franchise," Jonathan Nolan said. "I mean, they've successfully pulled it off with Bond, but at certain costs, certainly at the cost of continuity. I think with almost every other franchise it's a mistake to try and keep those plates spinning. You want stakes. You want tectonic plates to shift. And as a writer you wanna feel you've worked on a complete story, with a beginning, a middle and an end."
David Goyer stated to Empire:
“The final scene of ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ is exactly [the] scene we talked about [when Christopher Nolan and I started the trilogy with 'Batman Begins']. It remained completely unchanged. We both knew in our hearts that we were onto something special. I have to tell you, having finally seen everything strung together a little while ago and seeing that scene, I got a complete lump in my throat.” When Empire asked Goyer for comment on whether it would be “commercial sacrilege” he simply replied “Yup! That’s why it’s ****ing exciting!”
Does Bruce Wayne die or retire? With Bane as the main villain, I am 99% sure Batman has his back broken. We will find out on July 20th.

Jane Fonda, Barbarella
The director of "Drive", Nicolas Winding Refn, is set to direct and produce a TV series based on the classic French comic "Barbarella" says Variety.
Gaumont Intl., Television is behind the series. The character "Barbarella" was created by Jean-Claude Forest and was famously adapted for film in 1968. The 1968 film starred Jane Fonda.
In an official statement, Refn says "I look forward to bringing this unique character to life for a new generation of fans as I believe she is one of the ultimate counter-cultural characters."
No word yet on who will play Barbarella. A few years ago Robert Rodriguez was set to direct a film remake of "Barbarella" with Rose McGowan in the lead role for Universal Pictures, but Universal eventually backed out of the production.
