No surprise here as many Hollywood productions already are underway in the UK, i.e. Sony’s Cinderella and Universal’s Jurassic World: Dominion (both which we first told you about), but Matt Reeves’ The Batman will return to filming in the UK next month at Warner Bros. Studios Leavesden.

Filming stopped in March due to the coronavirus pandemic. Reportedly, set construction began last month. The pic’s panel will be part of Warner Bros.’ DC Fandome on Saturday.

Unlike Canada, where incoming U.S. production crews have to quarantine for 14 days before working, that is not the case in the UK as film productions are deemed essential workers.

Warners already has resumed shooting the Village Roadshow co-production The Matrix 4 in Berlin.

Reeves told me soon after the pandemic shutdown that a quarter of The Batman was in the can, but he wasn’t planning on editing anything at that point. He was going to use his down-time reconsidering “the tone of things. It happens any time you shoot anything. The unexpected — happy accidents and things you didn’t quite expect: That is the lightning in a bottle for something that is alive. I would say that the changes really have to do with ‘Oh, seeing the tone of this’ with these scenes we haven’t done which connect to that part of the storyline. It feels like there might be an opportunity to explore some of that unexpected tone that we found. With these movies, you never have enough prep time, because they’re so complex and so enormous in so many ways. It also gives me a moment to think about the larger sequences that have yet to come up and how I want to realize those.”

Due to COVID-19, the release date for The Batman was pushed from June 2021 to October 1, 2021. The reboot stars Pattinson in the title role, Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, Colin Farrell as the Penguin, Paul Dano as the Riddler, Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth, Jeffrey Wright as James Gordon and John Turturro as Carmine Falcone.

Variety first had the news about The Batman going back to production. Warner Bros. didn’t provide comment when reached by Deadline.

Christopher Nolan may well be the most secretive filmmaker of all time, and it seems it’s futile to try to keep secrets from a master of secrecy.

In a new Irish Times story on Nolan’s upcoming film Tenet, star Robert Pattinson recalled his attempt to fool the director so he could sneak away from the set to audition for Matt Reeves’ The Batman. Apparently, the ruse failed miserably.

“It’s funny because Chris is so secretive about everything to do with his movies,” Pattinson said. “And then I had to be really secretive about Batman stuff. So I had to lie to Chris about having to go for a screen test — I said I had a family emergency. And as soon as I said ‘it’s a family emergency’ he said: ‘You’re doing the Batman audition, aren’t you?’”

Nolan, of course, famously put his own spin on Batman with the Dark Knight trilogy several years ago. Pattinson, meanwhile, landed the part, and credits Tenet with helping him get in shape for the role of the Caped Crusader.

“When I’m running on screen I’m generally paired with John David [Washington] who is an ex-NFL player so it was the most unfair thing in the world,” Pattinson told the Irish Times. “The maximum workout I do most of the time is a casual stroll. John David can run all day long. It was good that I ended up being pretty fit. But definitely, at the beginning, there were days I just could not walk afterwards.”

Tenet stars Pattinson and Washington as… well, we’re not really sure, as they attempt to… well, we don’t really know that either. (Remember what we said about Nolan’s secrecy?) What we do know is that Tenet is currently slated for an international rollout starting on Aug. 26, after having its release date pushed back multiple times due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The film will open in select U.S. theaters on Sept. 3.

The Batman, meanwhile, halted filming in March due to the pandemic, and is currently set to be released Oct. 1, 2021.
