Producer Chuck Roven Talks Batman Begins

CHUD interviewed Batman Begins producer Chuck Roven about the upcoming Christopher Nolan film and here’s a few clips from the article…

Chuck: The whole concept of this Batman is that it will be different from the other Batmans because it’s going to be much more reality-based in that everything that the character does, a living person today could evolve to do. Everything – all of the equipment – the plane, the car, the cape, everything has a real, scientific, practical reason for being and using and you’re going, ‘Gee, that could happen today.’

S.J.R.: Are Bale and Oldman signed for multiple movies like the Scooby cast?

Chuck: There are certain of the actors – certainly Christian is on for more than one Batman. A number of the cast – even though there’s no guarantee, there’s no script, there’s no story for what the next incarnation of Batman Begins would be – there are certain actors that the possibility that they would be around if there was going to be one was talked about and those are the ones we negotiated sequels with and there are others that we have not.

Q: Would you do one with the Joker?

Chuck: You have to see this one to see what possibly will happen in the next one. All of the seeds – if there will be a next one – are there even though the exact story for the next one hasn’t been worked out. But, we’re doing Batman Begins, so you can imagine that you find out the history of the character, why Bruce Wayne went on the journey to become this character of Batman – how he got there – and also the other characters within this story. They embark on their journeys and maybe become some of his biggest foes.
