The trailer for the upcoming Batman: THE MOVIE will have to be “The Movie that Never Was”, according to one of the film’s producers.
According to Deadline, the movie’s script was written by Oscar-nominated screenwriter David Fincher and his wife, director Alex Garland.
The trailer was unveiled at the Venice Film Festival earlier this month, and was shot in the United Kingdom, where Fincheys script was adapted from the Italian movie of the same name.
It is unclear how many scenes were shot, but the movie will reportedly be set in a future Batman era, and will also see the return of the Joker, who was last seen in “Batman Begins”.
The Joker was killed in “The Dark Knight”.
A spokesperson for Warner Bros. Entertainment confirmed to Deadline that Finchers script had been approved, but added that it is “unlikely” that a sequel to the film would be made.
“We’re just looking at what we can do in the world right now,” the spokesperson said.
“Obviously, we’d like to make sure that we make it as good as we can.”
Fincher’s script will be released on September 28, and is said to have a budget of around $40 million.
It follows “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” which cost around $60 million, and “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2” that cost around £65 million.
Finchers is no stranger to the world of cinema, having produced several films in the past, including “Gravity”, “The Social Network” and “Dangerous Liaisons”.
