Production on Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy finale The Dark Knight Rises continues with shooting scheduled on both sides of the Atlantic. While a majority of the location work seems schedule for Pittsburgh, there appears to be several other locales set to appear in the film.
For Bruce Wayne’s stately home, Wayne Manor, Movieweb is reporting that Osterly Park an 18th century country estate in Middlesex, England has been selected. In an email to the site, an anonymous employee stated “Osterley Park is the inside of the Wayne Manor. That’s right 3 rooms – dining room, and study – we forgot to ask what the 3rd room was – it was mentioned the study has a secret exit that will lead to the Batcave.”
Corroborating the story is a note on the Osterly Park website stating that “The House will be completely closed to public for filming from 15 June to 22 June.” Three guesses as to when filming is going to be there then?
Meanwhile, back on this side of the Atlantic, Pittsburgh might not be the only city to double for Gotham. Newark, New Jersey mayor Cory Booker tweeted late last week that he had met with producers about the possibility of some location work being done in his city.
Props to Booker for knowing who Nightwing is.
As the production continues over the summer, there is sure to more locations announced.
