    5 More Actresses to Consider for the Female Roles in "The Dark Knight Rising"

    We're once again teasingly treated to a casting shortlist, this one for two female roles in Christopher Nolan's next Batman movie, "The Dark Knight Rises."

    Watch: Trailer For 'Barney's Version' Starring Paul Giamatti & Dustin Hoffman

    In one of the boldest casting moves in recent memory, Paul Giamatti will be playing to an irascible, cantankerous schlub in the forthcoming "Barney's Version."

    Christopher Nolan To Shoot 'The Dark Knight Rises' Completely In IMAX?

    Old Rumor Surfaces Once AgainPerhaps running just as long as the rumor that the Riddler would be the villain in "The Dark Knight Rises" (which was one of the first things the secretive Christopher Nolan denied about the project) the second persistent tidbit about the forthcoming film was that Christopher Nolan and his regular DP Wally Pfister were strongly considering shooting it completely in IMAX. Of course, Nolan utilized the format for certain segments for "The Dark Knight," but due to the camera's bulky nature and noisy operation, at the time it was largely limited to exteriors or brief action sequences (notably, the opening bank heist)...
