“The Dark Knight Rises” could film at Occupy Wall Street protests

By Sean O’Connell Protestors occupying Wall Street for the past few weeks have received enough media attention, but if reports we’re hearing are true, the movement could be immortalized on screen in an eagerly anticipated sequel.

Christopher Nolan’s “The Dark Knight Rises” is moving to New York City after highly-covered location shoots in London, Pittsburgh and Los Angeles, 24 Frames reports. And during the scheduled 14-day shoot, it’s being suggested that Nolan and his crew could film at the Occupy Wall Street protests and factor them into the story.

“While the person who’d been told of the plans said the protests could figure into the production, they said that doesn’t mean they will be included in the storyline,” the site reports. “In other words, Nolan, who’s known for carefully planning out scenes months in advance, wouldn’t necessarily be tweaking the script; he’d simply be using the protests as a backdrop or a stand-in for something that already exists in the film.”

So much of what we’ve seen from the “Rises” shoots have included bedlam in the streets. The Pittsburgh footage showed actual riots on the steps of City Hall (I believe). And that key footage shot from inside Pittsburgh’s Heinz Field showed Tom Hardy’s Bane inciting Gotham’s citizens to rise up and take back the city.

Could the Wall Street protestors be turned into Gotham protestors? Will Nolan’s presence at the demonstrations bring any more attention to the movement? Can Warner open “The Dark Knight Rises” a few months earlier? Because I’d really like to see it.
