Well the rumor has been going on since he was cast for his role in Inception…
Levitt was rumored to replace the Joker because he seemed to resemble Heath Ledger. Naturally the Joker rumors were shot down quickly, but apparently Levitt is still in the mix for The Dark Knight Rises.
Well Deadline seems more or less of a safe source so I’m going along in assuming that the statement that Levitt is meeting to talk for a role in TDKR.
Curious what his role will be, let’s wait and see the conspiracies spread.
It speaks volumes for the anticipation of this movie compared to other blockbusters, since the tiniest casting choice is already worthy of a big news, but what else is to expect after the fantastic The Dark Knight.
To wet one’s appetite a little more, here’s an interview with Wally Pfister, the man who started to shot direct to video erotic movies and has now been nominated four times for his work as cinematographer (Batman Begins, The Prestige, The Dark Knight, Inception – notice what they have in common?)
The interview doesn’t say much, expect the usual “he nailed it” “It’s a perfect script” all the things I would like to believe The Dark Knight Rises is – but of course coming from a guy who worked on the movie one has to take the news with a grain of salt.
