CHICAGO – We reported a week ago that “The Dark Knight Rises” may transform the West London mansion Osterley Park into the film’s Wayne Maynor. While this hasn’t yet been officially confirmed by Warner Bros., we now have enough information to unofficially confirm this rumor.

CHICAGO – “The Dark Knight Rises” is seeing a casting frenzy over the past week. Just three days after we learn that Matt Modine, Tom Conti and Joey King have joined Christopher Nolan’s blockbuster team, Variety on Monday broke the news that veteran character actors Brett Cullen and Chris Ellis will round out the film’s already A-list ensemble cast.

CHICAGO – On the same day the Batman world was set ablaze by the launch of “The Dark Knight Rises” viral marketing (where the villain Bane was revealed), Variety on Friday had fun by misleadingly breaking the news of a “joker” being cast in the highly anticipated 2012 film.

Everything else we’ve already reported.

    CHICAGO – If you’ve ever wondered what the difference is between a director and a producer, let “47 Ronin” explain how the hierarchy of creativity hinders the evolution of even the most straightforward-sounding pitches. “47 Ronin” is the type of samurai movie set in Japan that features native actors speaking only English, while Keanu Reeves stars as an outsider clearly plunked into the picture for stateside star power.

Russell’s film concerned a wayward priest desperate to protect his 17th century city from corruption in the Church only to fall victim to group hysteria when he is, ironically, accused of witchcraft by a jealous nun.
