Heath Ledger BAFTA Acceptance speech February 9th, 2009

The BBC have put up the BAFTA accep­tance speeches, below is the speech made on behalf of Heath Ledger on win­ning Best Sup­port­ing Actor:

Batman sequel due in 2011 January 26th, 2009

New Jersey’s Courier Post spoke to Bat­man Begins and The Dark Knight exec­u­tive pro­ducer Michael Uslan. He expects the third Chris Nolan Bat­man movie to make an appear­ance in 2011. This seems log­i­cal to us, fol­low­ing a sim­i­lar time frame as Begins to Knight — it gives the cre­ative team a chance to flesh out some ideas whilst allow­ing Nolan to have a break from the fran­chise for a year or so, per­haps to work on other projects (such as The Pres­tige).

Uslan will be onboard as exec­u­tive pro­ducer for the “Dark Knight” sequel, which he esti­mates will be [in] the­aters by 2011. As for the iden­tity of the next round of Batman’s supervil­lains and love inter­ests, Uslan remains tight-lipped. “It’s one of those deals where if I told you, I’d have to kill you,” he says with a chuckle.

Heath Ledger wins “Outstanding Actor in a Supporting Role” at Screen Actors Guild Awards January 26th, 2009

Last night was the 15th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards, usu­ally seen as a very good indi­ca­tion of who the Oscar win­ners shall be. Heath Ledger’s The Joker pulled through fend­ing off com­pe­ti­tion from the likes of Downey Jr. and Josh Brolin:

Out­stand­ing Actor In A Sup­port­ing Role

Heath Ledger — The Dark Knight
Phillip Sey­mour Hoff­man — Doubt
Dev Patel — Slum­dog Mil­lion­aire
Robert Downey Jr. — Tropic Thun­der
Josh Brolin — Milk
WINNER: Heath Ledger — The Dark Knight

The signs are look­ing good, and given TDK’s Best Pic­ture and Best Direc­tor snubs, all our chips and Heath Ledger’s are in on this one.

TDK also brought home a sec­ond award from the SAGs for “Out­stand­ing Per­for­mance by a Stunt Ensem­ble in a Motion Pic­ture”.

Eckhart comments on Harvey Dent’s future at Globes January 11th, 2009

From MTV:

“I think Har­vey — if he’s not dead — is in a seri­ous coma,” stated Eck­hart, “and I’m not sure he’s com­ing out. They might pull the plug on him.” Seem­ingly firm words, right? Except even the notion that his alter-ego is still alive is a clear depar­ture from pre­vi­ous state­ments where the actor was per­fectly fine con­firm­ing Harvey’s death at the busi­ness end of a freefalling drop.

We know from our recent inter­view with pro­ducer Charles Roven that screen­writ­ers Christo­pher Nolan and David Goyer have begun brain­storm­ing ideas for a third “Bat­man” film…could some­thing out of that have led to Eckhart’s about-face on Two-Face? His wink-wink-nod-nod answer seems to sug­gest that some­thing else may be at play.

Are MTV clutch­ing at straws here?
