Christopher Nolan has come up with the goods for The Dark Knight Rises, Gary Oldman has said.

The actor - who received the Empire Icon at the Jameson Empire Awards - is to reprise his role as Commissioner Jim Gordon in the filmmaker's third Batman outing, which will star Christian Bale in the title role, and reckons fans will be pleased with it.

"I can't say anything really, except that it's a really great story - it's a terrific story. When you thought that he couldn't top himself, he's come up with a good one," he said.

Gary, who will next be seen in Red Riding Hood and Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part Two, didn't divulge too many details about his part in the forthcoming film either, saying: "I am back. They are revamping the role of Commissioner Gordon."

But he did gush over Christopher, who also directed Batman Begins and The Dark Knight.

"I love Chris Nolan. He is lovely to work with and very sweet. He's very calm on set, knows exactly what he wants," he said.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Sagittarius:

Working in isolation doesn't suit you. You're a social creature who gets your best ideas when collaborating with others. Unfortunately, that's not possible right now. Resign yourself to this difficult situation. If you do a good job, you'll pave the way for bigger and better assignments. Part of the problem is you lack experience. The only way to get the training you need is to do some volunteer work. Making a temporary sacrifice will eventually pay off. Be patient.More
