After shooting The Dark Knight Rises, we’re told Christopher Nolan plans to return to reality — even if it’s one stranger than fiction. Insiders with knowledge of his plans tell Vulture exclusively that Nolan next wants to direct a long-shelved Howard Hughes biopic he’d abandoned when it became clear that Martin Scorsese would beat him to the screen with The Aviator in 2004.

But while Scorsese’s film is understood to have been heavily based on Charles Higham’s biography Howard Hughes: The Secret Life and centered largely on the early years of Hughes' life up to 1947, we hear Nolan’s movie is based on Michael Drosnin’s Citizen Hughes: The Power, the Money and the Madness (first published in 1985), and would focus on the freakier decades of Hughes remarkably secretive and OCD-addled life.

Drosnin is a former Washington Post and Wall Street Journal reporter who’s best known for writing the bestseller The Bible Code, but his Citizen Hughes leans extensively on some astonishing primary sourcing: Over three thousand pages of Hughes’s own handwritten memoranda, which leaked after the billionaire's office was burglarized in 1975.

As such, we’re told Nolan’s Hughes movie will covers many later events and quirks on which Scorsese’s movie punted: We'll meet the Howard Hughes who spent much of 1948 sitting naked in a bungalow at the Beverly Hills Hotel with only a pink dinner napkin covering his genitals as he screened movies from his studio, RKO Pictures, and ran up an $11 million tab; the Hughes who — obsessed with food safety — once bought every franchise restaurant chain in his home state of Texas, and who was similarly so concerned about air quality that he installed an aircraft filtration system in his 1954 Chrysler New Yorker, taking up its entire trunk; the Howard Hughes who had his hair cut and nails trimmed only once a year, and who was seemingly as addicted to Baskin Robbins Banana Ripple ice cream as he was to regular codeine injections; the Hughes who at the end of his life considered only Mormons trustworthy enough to be let into his inner circle.

Our spies tell us Nolan wants to shoot his Hughes movie late in 2012, then release it in 2014 — by which time 10 years will have elapsed since Scorsese’s Aviator, a span Nolan seems to think sufficient enough for it not to invite immediate comparison.

Et tu vas voir que c'est pour celui-là qu'ils lui donneront son Oscar...

En tout cas, si ça se confirme, je dis pourquoi pas...le film de Scorsese n'a fait qu'effleurer cet aspect-là du personnage de Hughes donc y a la place pour permettre à Nolan de continuer à explorer son obsession de l'obsession, de la confrontation de la subjectivité de l'individu avec l'objectivité du monde réel...
J'en parlais justement avec Qui-Gon y a quelques mois : que va bien pouvoir faire Nolan après avoir terminé sa trilogie Batman et concrétisé un projet qu'il traînait depuis des années, son film-somme Inception?
Je flippe un peu de l'aspect biopic, de la redite avec The Aviator, tout ça, mais voir Nolan s'atteler à cette partie de la vie de Hughes, c'est assez excitant.
Maintenant qu'il a tourné avec DiCaprio, oserait-il le recaster dans le rôle? :D
Quand il devait réaliser le film à la base, l'acteur attaché au rôle était Jim Carrey.

J'adore Aviator et de ce que j'ai pu voir de la vie de Howard Hugues il y a largement de quoi dire sur ce qui se passe après le film.

Et tu vas voir que c'est pour celui-là qu'ils lui donneront son Oscar...

À coup sûr ouais.
D'ailleurs rien que le titre, ça sent le très grand film :D

Et si c'est toujours Jim Carrey, c'est 7/6

C'est vrai, dans The AViator, ils montrent pas comment il invente le Rocketeer.

Faudrait caster Dwayne Johnson dans le rôle, comme ça le film pourra montrer comme le Rock il tire.

Je vote pour Billy Crudup dans le rôle-titre. Il a ce qu'il faut de génie fébrile et de ressemblance physique.

Putain topic que je relisais hier...bah c'est mort.

In the new, must-read issue of Empire Magazine, it emerges that the Hughes project is now off the table, the director saying he was able to scratch that itch with the Batman franchise -- "Luckily I managed to find another wealthy, quirky character who's orphaned at a young age."

Par contre, le cinéaste réitère son envie de faire un James Bond :

One possibility, albeit a way down the line, is a Bond movie. The director, as most Brits who grew up watching the Ian Fleming franchise, is a long-time fan of the series, mentioning Bond as a key influence on both "Batman Begins" and "Inception", and a couple of years back, expressed an interest in directing an entry in the series at some point.

In the Empire interview, Nolan reiterates that he's serious about the prospect, and even says he's met with the franchise's producers at some point in the past, but cautions that "It would have to be the right situation and the right time in their cycle of things."

Ca me serait paru absolument impossible il y a encore quelques temps mais quand on voit que Sam Mendes réalise un Bond, (ensemble) tout devient possible.
Mais bon, est-ce que ça vaut le coup?

Je sais pas si suffisamment de liberté lui sera laissé pour proposer quelque chose de vraiment personnel et Bond n'est pas vraiment un personnage nolanien...

Bon sinon, je me repose la question du coup : mais que va-t-il bien pouvoir faire après TDKR?

The director also revealed that his long brewing Howard Hughes biopic — once considered dead — is back on the boil. Originally in the works after “Insomnia,” and set to star Jim Carrey as the reclusive billionaire, the project got put on hold when Martin Scorsese made “The Aviator,” but has always remained in the background. A handful of years back, it was reported that Nolan was using Michael Drosnin’s “Citizen Hughes: The Power, the Money and the Madness” as source material for the project, and he says it’s still kicking around.

“Howard Hughes is a fascinating character. A lot of what I put into the script, which I do intend to make one day, I put into Bruce Wayne. There’s been many films that have addressed different aspects of his life but not the whole thing,” Nolan explained.

It’s interesting because Bruce Wayne is the reason Nolan waved away doing the movie, but it looks like he’s found a new way into the material.

Whether or not that’s next remains to be seen.
