Titan Books to Publish THE DARK KNIGHT RISES Novelization

Novelist Greg Cox is currently penning the novelization of The Dark Knight Rises which will be published by Titan Books and released day and date with the movie.

Warner Bros. Pictures' and Legendary Pictures' "The Dark Knight Rises," the much-anticipated final chapter in writer-director Christopher Nolan's film trilogy featuring the legendary DC Comics character Batman, will be adapted into an official tie-in novel written by award-winning author Greg Cox and published by Titan Books, under a licensing agreement with Warner Bros. Consumer Products.

Novelist Greg Cox is no stranger to Batman or the DC Comics Universe, having written the official novelizations for such major comic book storylines as Infinite Crisis (2006), 52 (2007), Countdown (2009), and Final Crisis (2010). He has produced numerous bestselling adaptations and original novels based on Star Trek, Underworld, Warehouse 13, and other popular properties. His original novel Terminator Salvation: Cold Warwon the 2010 Scribe Award for tie-in fiction, and CSI: Headhunter took the award in 2009.

"Batman is one of the most iconic characters of popular culture," Titan Publisher Nick Landau said. "We're tremendously excited to work with Warner Bros. on the novelization of ‘The Dark Knight Rises,' especially since it is the culmination of everything Christopher Nolan has done with his amazing trilogy. This is a part of motion picture history."

The publishing of Titan Books' The Dark Knight Rises is timed to reach consumers worldwide on the same day as the Warner Bros. Pictures release. "The Dark Knight Rises" opens in theatres on Friday, July 24, 2012.
