Actor Gary Oldman recently attended the Empire Awards, where he gave a few interesting tidbits of information regarding The Dark Knight Rises. According to the actor behind James Gordon, the production draft of the screenplay does not include the ending. Director Christopher Nolan personally told the actor how this trilogy will come to it's climax, so that it does not leak out online.
"The Dark Knight Rises begins in May. All I can say is that it's a really great story. It's a great script. (Christopher Nolan) has outdone himself from The Dark Knight. It is fantastic. I'll be picking up the script here in a couple of weeks. I am actually working with Tom Hardy on The Wettest County in the World, that I am going to do. I worked with him on Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy. Then he is in the next Batman. So, its the year of Tom Hardy. I have quite a bit to do with Tom in this one. You know the character? Its going to be fantastic. Its common knowledge at this point."
Gary Oldman then explained the script reading process, and that the ending is not available in print.
"To get into the production office, you have someone meet you. Then there are keys in various doors that lock. The script? You read it in the production office. And there is no ending to the script, either. (Christopher Nolan) tells you the ending so that it doesn't leak and get out, and people spoil it on the Internet. Its very tight security. That is how he does it."
Gary Oldman could only say this about his third turn as Jim Gordon in The Dark Knight Rises
"I have a lot to do. The story is fabulous. He brings it back. He brings it around. That's it. I can't say anymore."
