Matt Reeves’ The Batman has finally found its cinematographer.
While reports had previously suggested that Live By Night‘s Robert Richardson had signed on for the production they turned out to be false.
However, we now know who has signed on for the Batman reboot. Oscar-nominated cinematographer Greig Fraiser will be handling DP duties for the production. This will not be the first time that Fraiser has worked with Matt Reeves. The two previously came together to work on 2010
Fraiser was previously lauded for his work on Lion, which was a contender at the Oscars in 2016.
Some of Fraiser’s previous projects have included Jane Campion’s 2009 J Bright Star, the 2012 crime film Killing Them Softly, Zero Dark Thirty, and Rogue One. He most recently was the director of photography for Adam McKay’s Dick Cheney biopic Vice and has been tapped to be the director of photography for Denis Villeneuve’s Dune.
Matt Reeves has been assigned to The Batman for sometime now, but it was not until earlier this year that we had an idea on when production for it would actually start. We now know that Batman v Superman star Ben Affleck is not going to reprise his role as the dark knight and has been replaced by Good Time‘ Robert Pattinson. Sources with knowledge of the project have previously stated that Reeves is more interested in telling a detective story featuring a younger Bruce Wayne that is early into his career as Batman.
The cameras for The Batman are due to start rolling in London sometime in early 2020 ahead of a June 25th, 2021 release date.
