Although Al Pacino starred in Christopher Nolan’s Insomnia, relations between the pair have since cooled.
“He hasn’t offered me a film in a while, you know why? I’ll tell you why,” the Scarface actor says at a BFI event. “He asked me to be in this movie and I didn’t do it.”
While Pacino won’t divulge the film in question, he thinks he annoyed the Batman Begins director. “I think that might have miffed him a little bit, but I’m being presumptuous myself.”
Im pretty sure it was Maroni (if it was a Batman film). Gordon was offered to Chris Cooper who turned it down. Oldman was asked to be Ras after Nolan toyed with the idea of having a younger Ras (Guy Pearce was to play that role). After Gary declined, he was offered Gordon and i read that both Daniel Day Lewis & Viggo Mortensen were in the running for Ras Al Ghul.
