The Dark Knight Sequel

The Joker coming back in the future 2011 franchise entry? Well, MTV reports here that producer Charles Roven said: "We have to separate the actors from the role. On a personal level, Heath [Ledger] was a friend of mine. We had worked together before The Dark Knight, but I still think that The Dark Knight is its own thing, and we have to separate them."


Tony Shalhoub has confirmed that the eighth season of the show will be the last. Shalhoub said: "It's a great job, and I work with great people, and I really enjoy doing the character, but I think eight years is enough. I think we've kind of explored all the avenues we could possibly cover, and as much as I like the show and working on it, I really do want to think about moving onto whatever the next chapter might be. I think I want to keep acting, but I want to branch out and maybe be a producer on things I'm not acting in."

IGN talks here about the film directed by Gerald McMorrow, which is described as follows: "Franklyn is a split narrative set simultaneously in contemporary London and in a future metropolis ruled by religious fervor. It's the story of four lost souls, divided by two parallel worlds, on course for an explosive collision when a single bullet will decide all their fates. Ryan Phillippe plays Preest, a masked vigilante detective searching for his nemesis on the streets of Meanwhile City. Bernard Hill plays Esser, a broken man searching for his wayward son amongst the rough streets of London's homeless. Sam Riley plays Milo, a heartbroken thirty-something desperately trying to find a way back to the purity of first love. Eva Green plays Emilia, a beautiful art student; her suicidal art projects are becoming increasingly more complex and deadly."
