If you’ve been holding your breath waiting for news of the next “Batman” movie, well, go ahead and breathe. Christopher Nolan, the filmmaker who brought new life to the franchise with “Batman Begins” and the unjustly-ignored-by-the-Oscars gem “The Dark Knight,” will reportedly make his next project the sci-fi action film “Inception.” Nolan wrote the screenplay, which is said to be “set within the architecture of the mind.” (Shades of his breakthrough movie, “Memento”?) “Inception” would be shot this summer, with a planned release in summer 2010. Batfans, it seems, will just have to wait. Then again, Nolan made “The Prestige” between his first two “Batman” movies, and the wait was worth it.
