Returned from his two-year-long hiatus from acting in 2004 for Christopher Nolan's fourth film, Batman Begins (2005), and appeared in two independent films in 2005; before announcing he would most likely be taking 2006 and 2007 off to concentrate on his writing and directing, as well as the business side of things at Holden Automotive, the production company through which he made his own independent films.

Personal Quotes (4)

On why he decided to leave Hollywood: "Have you ever been there? No?... Really?... Well, let me put it to you in movie terms, I guess... It's kind of like... the set of Blade Runner (1982)".
On why he decided to leave acting for writing and directing: "It's as simple and... corny, I guess, as this, really... If I'm not hearing music I like, I just put one of my own albums on the turn table."
On why he absolutely refuses to let Hollywood finance his films: "But they do. In a way. Not with money, but rather with whatever very minor notoriety I may have achieved with the very minor acting I managed to get myself to do when I was there. And I feel no shame at all in playing that bent, little Hollywood card or whatever to stir up the press a bit and help my 'little' company and our 'little' films get out there a bit in the world. Sure, sometimes it's hard not to laugh and/or cry while I'm playing that game, but... nowadays it's all about making my own films. And I believe they're worth it. They're more than worth playing along with the whole charade. But one would have to, of course, believe in them, your films, wholeheartedly, or else you wouldn't go through all that crap that you have to just to create them. And hey, if all other options run out down the road, along with whatever's in my bank account, I might have to do more than play that Hollywood card, I might have to play Hollywood itself. But enough said there, I think."
On returning to acting: "But I gotta tell ya, after working on 'Black Men Can Swim,' which was absolutely my worst acting experience ever, I'm not sure if I'll ever get in front of the camera again. It was a complete and total nightmare, from start to finish."
