London, (ANI): British director Christopher Nolan may not make third Batman movie. According to insiders in the industry, the helmer is "reluctant" to sign up for the next installment. The news has come as a shock to actor Christian Bale, who has already signed for the next flick, reports The Daily Express.
The Prestige star, who shares a good rapport with Nolan, expressed his disappointment over the news, saying: "The fact is I have to do it, I've signed up, I'm in a bit of a fix if he says he doesn't want to do it." A source said: "It will come as a real blow to Christian if Christopher won't direct him on the next Batman film even if Christian is contractually obliged to do it." The film is scheduled for release in 2011.
