Christian Bale, star of the upcoming The Dark Knight recently sat down with Entertainment Weekly and discussed the film, a potential third installment and Terminator IV. Highlights after the jump.
On doing another Batman:
Entertainment Weekly: So do you think there will be a part 3 of Batman?
Christian Bale: Um, look, let’s wait and see…
EW: Or, I guess it’d be part 7.
CB: No, no, no, no, no. [Smiling] Part 3 is what I’d consider it, yeah, I don’t say part 7. Batman begins — that was the beginning there, with all due respect to the others. We are re-creating this. You know, obviously the decision is out of my hands. I would, knowing the Dark Knight story, I would like very much to complete a trilogy. And I think that knowing the story of The Dark Knight, it leaves you anticipating something that really can get very, very interesting for a third. Now, the question would be: Is Chris going to be doing it? Because to me I find it tricky to imagine working on it without it being a collaboration with Chris.
On the status of Terminator IV:
EW: Where are you in the Terminator process right now?
CB: There are some wonderful people who have been brought in, and we are working to re-create that world.
EW: Do you have a script?
CB: We’re in the process of doing that, we’re working on that, et cetera.
EW: Do you have a sense of when Terminator is going to start or how long it’s going to take?
CB: I got a sense of it, but, you know, it’s important to make sure that you start a movie when you’re ready, instead of just starting it on a date, regardless. And so we’ll start when we’re ready.
