Christopher Nolan to follow ‘Dark Knight Rises’ with supernatural thriller

Director reportedly working on novel adaptation

The Dark Knight Rises director Christopher Nolan is set to follow his work on the Batman sequel with a supernatural thriller, according to a report.

The as-yet-untitled new film is believed to be a novel adaptation and has already signed on a writer and director in the form of Keith Gordon, reports Deadline.com.

Nolan is currently completing work on the latest Batman movie, which is scheduled for a summer 2012 release.

Footage from The Dark Knight Rises leaked onto the internet courtesy of a YouTube uploader earlier this week.

The video features franchise stars Christian Bale and Anne Hathaway, with Nolan overseeing the action.

The film will see Bale reprise his dual role as Batman/Bruce Wayne, with Michael Caine, Gary Oldman, Morgan Freeman and Tom Hardy also in the cast.

Meanwhile, Nolan is also set to work on another superhero film in the form of Superman reboot Man Of Steel, which is also slated for release next year.
