Variety is reporting that Matthew Modine, Tom Conti and Joey King have been cast in Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight Rises film. There’s no word on what roles they will play, or when they will appear on set, but the more news that trickles out that gets people talking can’t be that bad.
Principal photography has begun on Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Legendary Pictures’ “The Dark Knight Rises,” the epic conclusion to filmmaker Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy.
Leading an all-star international cast, Oscar® winner Christian Bale (“The Fighter”) again plays the dual role of Bruce Wayne/Batman.

One of the biggest questions surrounding The Dark Knight Rises is how will Bane tie into the overall story? A number of rumors have been spilling out of the bowels of the Intardwebz, and the latest has Bane emerging from a Venom filled Lazarus Pit.
The Plot leak you’ve been waiting for: Eyewitnesses and crew members told us of a particular scene being filmed, where a bald-headed child wearing ragged clothes emerges from the well and pulls his hood over his head. From the conversations, we reckon this is a young Bane, emerging from a vat of Venom, trained by Pence’s Ra’s al Ghul. The years of addiction to Venom builds him to be a massive monster with amped up senses, intelligence and physical prowess.
Keep in mind this is just a rumor, but since the Lazarus Pit is bound to come up in the Christopher Nolan trilogy, this might be the logical way to connect Bane with Ra’s.
