Morgan Freeman is a busy man. The film legend is still hard at work, hitting that PR trail in support of his new movie Now You See Me. I guess he didn’t get enough sleep or at the very most didn’t find Michael Caine interesting enough (sorry, Caine. I find you interesting!) that he fell asleep mid-interview. I wonder if he was dreaming of Caine was reading him a bed time story and that’s why he went into full-on nap mode…
Props to Freeman who even woke up and without skipping a beat, feigned interest.
VIDEO OF MORGAN FREEMAN FALLING ASLEEP MID-INTERVIEW AFTER THE JUMP:
The third trailer for Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Risesproves the movie will be just as epic as we hoped. The movie follows Batman eight years after he took the fall for Two Face’s crimes. A new terrorist leader, Bane overwhelms Gotham City.
The star-studded cast includes Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Gary Oldman, Morgan Freeman, Anne Hathaway, and Tom Hardy and will be out on July 20. Oh and of course, Joseph Gordon-Levitt will be the mysterious cop John Blake (swoon).
Other reasons why the clip is badass? It starts off with Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle predicting: ”There’s a storm coming.” This is followed by a series of explosions, including cars, bridges, buildings and trucks. Plus, we get a clip of Batman’s flying vehicle, dubbed The Bat.

According to PerezHilton.com, Christopher Nolan has been confirmed to direct the next Batman film, currently titled, The Untitled Batman Project.
After Nolan’s success with Batman Begins, The Dark Night, and more recently, Inception, it would seem silly for him to turn down the completion of the trilogy. Warner Brothers is being very quiet about the project. Perhaps they have another media stunt up their sleeve akin to the mystery surrounding Inception.
Christian Bale will reprise his role as Bruce Wayne/Batman and Michael Caine is still Alfred, but who is going to play the Riddler? People are dying to know who will play the character. It is rumored that Joseph Gordon Levitt will play the Riddler, but again, this could be a riddle in itself. I guess we will have to wait and see!
The film is in pre-production and Nolan is in final stages with the script. However, we probably won’t see this film for another couple of years.
