ComingSoon.net has found a few quotes from Heath Ledger talking about his upcoming role as The Joker in the Batman Begins follow-up The Dark Knight. I will admit, after first hearing of the casting I was a bit taken aback, but it sounds like Ledger has a good idea of the character he wants to play and as long as director Christopher Nolan keeps the mood of the follow-up the same as he had in Batman Begins I am already gettign psyched for this film.
First, from the Toronto Sun:
Sinister and darker, now that is what I want to hear.
From the Toronto Star:
“Along the lines of A Clockwork Orange.” Son of a bitch he just sold me.
The Dark Night begins filming next year for a 2008 release.
