Personal Quote:

[on the costs of shooting on film vs. digital] As far as the cost, it's a complete fallacy. I'm making my films cheaper than anybody working at the same scale on digital.

Trivia:

Adapted Ruth Rendell's novel, "The Keys to the Street", into a screenplay that he was set to direct for Fox Searchlight after Insomnia (2002). However, he instead went on to direct Batman Begins (2005). "Keys to the Street" remains unproduced. See more »

Trademark:

All of his films contain a major referential connection to his prior film (e.g. the Joker performs a deadly magic trick in The Dark Knight (2008); Nolan's previous film, The Prestige (2006), was about magicians performing magic tricks that turn deadly). See more »
