Christopher Nolan is best known for his dark, neo-noir films with non-linear storylines. After a micro-budget success in Following, Nolan's next script Memento was optioned and would receive an Oscar nomination, making him a sought-after director. This allowed him to approach Warner Bros. requesting he revive the Batman franchise and the first two films in this trilogy took huge box office takings. He followed this up with sci-fi action film Inception which won a number of Oscars. With the final part of the Batman trilogy now completed, Nolan is currently working on a reboot of the Superman series.
