The Oscar winning cinematographer recently completed work on The Dark Knight Rises and will commence principal photography in early autumn from an untitled screenplay by newcomer Jack Paglen.

Plot details remain under wraps on the script, which was developed at Straight Up Films. That company’s principals Marisa Polvino, Kate Cohen and Annie Marter will produce with Alcon co-CEOs Broderick Johnson and Andrew Kosove.

Pfister worked on last season’s Oscar nominee Moneyball and won the Academy Award for Inception. His credits include Christopher Nolan’s Batman series and Memento. He is also an accomplished commercials director.
