The Dark Knight Rises Production Overview
Nothing really new from Nolanfans.com’s Production “Update”. We already knew about Croyden, Inverness, Wayne Manor at Osterley Park and Wollaton Hall etc. but Somebody Likes the UK does provide an excellent snapshot.
Production has since moved a bit south of Central London to Croydon, where filming is taking place at the Delta Point offices. Pictures from recent filming have been popping up all over the place — some of which could be quite spoiler-y, so beware. Much of the cast seems to be on location for a lot of the recent filming, although production members are going to great lengths to keep things like that as secret as possible.
We mentioned in our last article that the production is said to be visiting Glasgow sometime this month, but we’ve also recently learned of a couple locations that will be used for the new Wayne Manor in The Dark Knight Rises. The official Nottingham website is noting that Wollaton Hall — a 16th-century mansion — will be closed from June 25th to July 2nd in order to “enable a film to have exclusive access” to the mansion. You may notice from the picture I used in the article banner above that Wollaton Hall looks very similar to Mentmore Towers — the location used for the original Wayne Manor used in Batman Begins. Given the events that transpire in that film, it’s only logical that the exact same location wouldn’t be used again. However, it should look quite similar — and it does. We’ve also learned via another official website that another mansion in the UK will temporarily closing — this time Osterley Park in West London. The mansion will be closed on various dates from June 15th to June 22nd. It is believed that this location will be used for Wayne Manor interiors. More »
