Michael Caine on The Dark Knight Rises Schedule

Michael Caine, who plays Alfred in Christopher Nolan’s Batman movies, previously said that he thought The Dark Knight Rises would "probably start in May next year."

He’s now given Empire magazine a little clearer picture of the film’s shooting schedule: "Emma [Thomas], the producer, said we’d get the script in January. Christopher said: ‘Script in January, shoot in May, finish in November.’"

Warner Bros. Pictures has set a July 20, 2012 release date for The Dark Knight Rises.
