Morgan Freeman briefly talks ‘The Dark Knight Rises’

Morgan Freeman lends his famous narrative voice to the new 3D IMAX film, Born to Be Wild. caught up with Freeman for an interview, and naturally The Dark Knight Rises came up. Here’s an excerpt from the article:

CS: What are you most excited about for “The Dark Knight Rises,” for you and the film?

Freeman: The most exciting thing about it is watching the openings, I’m telling you. Doing it, it’s fun to work with Chris Nolan. He’s really a terrific writer, a terrific director. One of those highlights of your career.

CS: Is there interesting stuff planned for you as Lucius Fox in the film?

Freeman: Oh, yeah – really good stuff!

This isn’t the first time we’ve heard about The Dark Knight Rises’ opening scene. Back in January, cinematographer Wally Pfister was raving over the opening sequence, calling it “very impressive”. What could Christopher Nolan have planned to top The Dark Knight’s awesome bank heist? Leave your thoughts in the comments.

Update: A commenter points out that “openings” is an industry term for the first weekend at the box office. Freeman was probably not commenting on the opening scene of The Dark Knight Rises like Wally Pfister did. Sorry for the confusion.
