He explained that it would be a great break from all of his comedies and would represent a nice change of pace artistically. Apparently, heâ€™s not looking to make anything gory or campy, but rather a straight up suspenseful thriller. Hereâ€™s an excerpt of what Smith had to say:
â€œItâ€™ll be a bit of slasher, but Iâ€™m kinda looking more atâ€¦ you remember that movie â€˜Race With the Devil?â€™ Itâ€™s more kind of in that vein. Or 'Wicker Man.' Something in that vein where itâ€™s creepy and unsettling more than gore.â€

â€œI suppose in loose terms I can say itâ€™s about things having to get worse before they get betterâ€¦ The title has been chosen very specifically. Itâ€™s quite important to the film.â€
He also talks about the interpretation of the Joker that audiences are likely to see, pointing to the very first two comics that the character appeared in.
Christian Bale will reprise his role as Bruce Wayne/Batman in the Warner Bros. pic and Oscar nominee Heath Ledger will play The Joker. There have also been rumors that Ryan Phillippe and Philip Seymour Hoffman might be cast as Two Face and The Penguin respectively.
â€œThe Dark Knightâ€ is scheduled to hit theaters in June 2008, but Bale and Nolan are both likely to hear critical and commercial acclaim long before then when their anticipated period thriller â€œThe Prestigeâ€ hits theaters on October 20th.
