Joseph Gordon-Levitt Joins Cast For 'Dark Knight Rises'

Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Marion Cotillard (photosMarion Cotillard photos) have joined 'The Dark Knight Rises'.

We had reported Cotillard would join the third film in director Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy in February but Warner Bros. has now officially confirmed the move.

Gordon-Levitt will play John Blake, a Gotham City beat cop assigned to special duty under the command of Commissioner Gordon. While Cotillard will play Miranda Tate, a Wayne Enterprises board member eager to help Bruce Wayne resume his father's philanthropic endeavors for Gotham.

The casting also reunites the actors with Tom Hardy and Nolan, who recently directed them in 'Inception'.

Anne Hathaway (photosAnne Hathaway photos) has already been announced to star as Selina Kyle, the alter ego of Catwoman.

"When you collaborate with people as talented as Marion and Joe, it comes as no surprise that you would want to repeat the experience," says Nolan.

"I immediately thought of them for the roles of Miranda and Blake, and I am looking forward to working with both of them again."

The film, which begins production next month, is set for release on July 20, 2012.
