HELP! Why won't my 4 year old son go to sleep before midnight?

My son is 4 years old and was on a sleeping routine until he was about 3 and he just decided when he was going to be going to bed and nothing I do will change this. He naps during the day at school for about an hour and a half, doesn't fall asleep until midnight or after and wakes up at 7am for school every morning. Even if he doesn't nap at school he will still stay awake until around midnight. On the weekends he won't wake up until about 11am after going to sleep at midnight. I have shut off the tv, lights and laid him down in bed around 9pm and he just lays there with his eyes open and still won't fall asleep until about midnight. It's like he literally just isn't tired so I let him lay in bed from 9pm until he falls asleep and i'll put a movie on for him. Any suggestions or opinions on why he won't go to sleep any earlier??
