Christian Bale London, May 1 (ANI): Welsh born English actor Christian Bale has revealed that he hopes ‘The Dark Knight’ director Christopher Nolan signs up for the third Batman film.

Bale, 35, said the reason he wants Nolan, 39, to direct the next movie, is because nobody would be able to do as good a job.

The actor is contractually obliged to star in a third film, but he is worried about the future of the franchise if Nolan refuses to take charge.

“It’s got to be the right story. You can’t make something like The Dark Knight and then come out with something disappointing,” the Daily Star quoted him as telling Total Film magazine.

“The fact is, I have to (make a third movie). I’ve signed up! Chris doesn’t. So I’m in a bit of a fix if he says he doesn’t want to!” he added.

Bale was directed by Nolan in 2005’s Batman Begins and reprised his role as the caped crusader for last year’s (08) box office smash, which grossed more than 69 million pounds worldwide. (ANI)
