Chris Nolan, Christian Bale talk “Dark Knight Rises” in Pittsburgh


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Christopher Nolan’s “The Dark Knight Rises” is about to start filming in Pittsburgh, and a press conference held by Nolan and his current Batman – Christian Bale – drew more coverage than President Barack Obama discussing the debt ceiling.

Allow us to throw another log on the burning Batman fire.

Here’s Bale talking about his involvement in the project:

As for Nolan, who’s preparing to decimate Pittsburgh as it stands in for Gotham City, he tells the Pittsburgh Businesstimes, “It’s a very beautiful city on a very impressive scale and that hasn’t lost its human scale. That is very impressive and very hard to find. … When you’re making a large-scale action film that has to showcase the vitality and size of a large American city but also involves a certain amount of disruption to that city in order to make the action credible on screen there needs to be a lot of cooperation from that city.”

The report goes on to say that the production plans to film at Heinz Field (during a football game) and Carnegie Mellon University.

“It’s going to put our city on the map,” said Pittsburgh Film Office director Dawn M. Keezer.

And if you live in Pittsburgh, Bale promised, “We’ll try to stay out of your hair as much as possible.”
