The Dark Knight Rises Set Against Occupy Wall Street | Youbuzzs.com
In September, we reported The Dark Knight Rises will shift production to New York City on October 29, and a new report indicates that director Christopher Nolan is gearing up to shoot within the Occupy Wall Street protests.
These plans are not quite finalized yet, but an insider reveals that cast members have been told their New York scenes will happen at the protest sites. It appears the actual movement, which has been happening for 30 days, won’t be a part of the storyline, but director Christopher Nolan may use scenes at the rally as the backdrop for an existing plot point.
A Warner Bros. spokesperson confirmed The Dark Knight Rises will be shooting in New York at this month’s end, but wouldn’t elaborate on the Occupy Wall Street aspect of the production.
The casting call, which went out in September, is seeking extras to portray law enforcement or military figures, particularly those with weapons or martial arts training.
The Dark Knight Rises comes to theaters July 20th, 2012 and stars Christian Bale, Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine, Gary Oldman, Tom Hardy, Anne Hathaway, Marion Cotillard, Joseph Gordon-Levitt. The film is directed by Christopher Nolan.
