Work on the next Batman movie is being treated as such a big secret, castmembers aren't even allowed to keep copies of the script.

Christian Bale will star as the CAPED CRUSADER in the anticipated film, which will be directed by Christopher Nolan.

But British actor Michael Caine, who just signed on to play ALFRED the butler, admits all details are currently under extremely tight wraps - even from the cast.

He says of film-maker Nolan, "He's very secretive. He gave me script to read, then sent a chauffeur two hours later to bring it back!"
