In other The Dark Knight Rises news, director Christopher Nolan seems to be causing a rift between Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures with his upcoming Batman adventure. The two companies, who worked jointly on The Dark Knight, have recently been discussing their co-financing and production deal, which lasts until 2013.
In 2008, Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures were 50/50 partners on The Dark Knight. This time around, Warner Bros. is reluctant to share half the profits from The Dark Knight Rises; one of the main factors being that they are about to lose their very lucrative Harry Potter franchise this year, and they are counting on The Dark Knight Rises to fill that financial void.
Legendary only recently agreed to once again collaborate on The Dark Knight Rises, and their financial terms are still being discussed. The same people who worked out the deal for The Dark Knight are no longer around, and with The Dark Knight Rises now shooting in London, negotiations are getting a little tense.
Look for this matter to be settled soon.
