Christopher Nolan‘s Dark Knight trilogy comes to an end this summer when The Dark Knight Rises hits theatres, and there are certain things we’ve come to expect from the films. one of these is the secrecy with which plot details are handled. We know almost nothing about these films before they come out, and according to Anne Hathaway the scripts really are closely guarded.
Hathaway reveals that she was closely monitored as she read scenes for her role as Catwoman, but she is adamant Nolan has the right idea about secrecy. She tells Britain’s The Sun, “I had to read the script in a locked room – OK, maybe the room wasn’t locked, I could be adding that for dramatic effect. But you know what I mean. I read it through once really fast and I went back and read over all of my scenes and tried to memorize them as much as I could instantly. It was cool. You could call Chris and ask, ‘What is this scene about again?’ When I screen-tested I took the sides (certain pages) home and it was really awkward, because the producer had to hunt me down to get them back so they could be destroyed.”
Anne Hathaway commends Nolan for the secrecy, adding: “This should be treated with a certain amount of secrecy, which is great, because I think it is so much more fun to discover it in the movie theatre when there is so much anticipation about the movie.”
