“It’ really like nothing else you’ve ever seen,” he says. “That’s the kind of stuff I try to find. It’s really original. The closest description I can come up with is: ‘Batman’ meets ‘Magnolia.’ So, it’s really going to be interesting.”

    i’m not sure about the Batman description but the Magnolia description excites me…..

    spot: If the meant the first Batman directed by Tim Burton it’s not that bad. Maybe he’s referring to the dark, gothic mood given to the city of London. Who knows? I’m trying to wish for the best! 😛

    Batman was probably mentioned because of the resemblance between Gotham city and the future London. Another common thing is the covered face of Ryan Phillippe during the whole film…Maybe Phillippe is influenced by the people that wanted Eva to be Batwoman (lol)

    I think the Tim Burton or Chris Nolan versions of Batman would be the most intriguing…

    to everyone: let’s just hope he means the Burton ones because the Nolan one didn’t really do it for me (though The Dark Knight seems very interesting) 😉

    Tim Burton has a unique style when making his movie. I love Nightmare Before Christmas and Edward Scissorhands.”`”
