Hong Kong’s Chen will be Batman’s partner in next sequel.
Edison Chen (é™³å† å¸Œ) has just been cast as ‘Robin’ in the 3rd Batman film, tentatively schedule for Summer 2010.
Director Chris Nolan was so impressed with Edison’s role in this year’s The Dark Knight (è™è ä¿ ï¼šé»‘å¤œä¹‹ç¥ž) – the sequel to 2005’s Batman Begins – that Nolan has re-written Edison’s scenes so that it seems logical that his character will become the Dark Knight’s junior partner in the third film, scheduled for 2 years from now.
So it looks like the sex scandal worked out in the end for Edison, bringing him the worldwide acclaim that all his Hong Kong movies couldn’t do. We have an exclusive audio interview with Edison about the role of ‘Robin’ below…
Happy April Fool’s Day!
