At a tribute for Christopher Nolan at the Santa Barbara Film Festival Sunday night, the Inception director revealed that his third Batman film, The Dark Knight Rises, will begin production in May, according to ComingSoon.net. “We’ve worked on it a long time — [writer] David Goyer and myself. We’re about 12 weeks away from shooting.” Nolan also told the moderator that he ultimately returned for a third and, most likely, final Batman film, because, “It was about finishing the story.”
