The Dark Curse

With months to the opening, the sequel to "Batman Begins", "The Dark Knight" is plagued by unexplainable problems since filming start. First, in September 2007, while planning a stunt with the Batmobile in a special effects facility, a technician was killed when his car crashed. And on 23 January 2008, Heath Ledger who played the Joker in the upcoming sequel was found dead from overdosage on prescribed medicine. In Feb 2008, the biggest sex scandal in HK history erupted, the male lead is none other than Edison Chen who had a cameo villian role in "Dark". You can brushed these off as perfect marketing tools for the movie but one can't helped but think of these incidents to be associated with the Dark Knight or The Dark Curse. You might also be interested to read about our earlier post.
