Titan Books will adapt an official tie-in novel for Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures’ film The Dark Knight Rises. The book will hit retail shelves to coincide with the film’s release July 24.
Warner Bros. Consumer Products and Titan Books will tap author Greg Cox to pen the novel. Cox has previously written comic storylines for the Batman series and the DC Universe.
“Batman is one of the most iconic characters of popular culture,” says Nick Landau, publisher, Titan Books. “We’re tremendously excited to work with Warner Bros. on the novelization of The Dark Knight Rises, especially since it is the culmination of everything Christopher Nolan has done with his amazing trilogy. This is a part of motion picture history.”
