What? A key member of the crew on Christopher Nolan's 'The Dark Knight Rises' has read the script and has nothing but good things to say about it? Madness!
Still, when that key member of the crew is Academy Award–nominated director of photography Wally Pfister, you can't help but sit up and take notice. The extraordinarily talented D.P. was a guest on the Kevin and Josh Movie Show (although it was First Showing that pointed us in the right direction), and he did a fine job drumming up hype while not giving away a single detail. No wonder the ever-secretive Nolan loves this guy. When asked how his director was going to top 'The Dark Knight,' Pfister unleashed this statement upon an unsuspecting Internet:
"I asked the same question. I read the script two weeks ago, and he's done it. Plain and simple -- he's done it. It's a phenomenal script. He's still in the process of cutting it back because it's a very long script right now, but it's really phenomenal. And he actually had me go back and wanted me to watch, in IMAX, 'Batman Begins' and 'The Dark Knight' again. When I watched those I had read the script for 'The Dark Knight Rises' and was like, 'Dude, it is a perfect trilogy.' I think that was his intent, to work off those two pictures -- and they are very different pictures. And it's funny, we all had different opinions about which picture we like better."
