The Dark Knight Rises shooting skydiving scenes in Scotland and looking for extras in PittsburghChristopher Nolan is currently shooting his final Batman adventure, The Dark Knight Rises, at Wollaton Hall in Nottingham, England, which is the new home of Wayne Manor. However, another unit of the production is shooting at the Cairngorm Gliding Club in the Highlands of Scotland for several skydiving scenes. The secretive shoot happened at the Gliding Club's Feshie Bridge site. Here are some excerpts from a recent article.

"Parachutists dressed in black and using a private jet painted black have been in action at Cairngorm Gliding Club's site at Feshie Bridge.

The club declined to comment, but sources have told BBC News Scotland online that the filming is for Batman.

A former US military C130 Hercules transport aircraft linked to The Dark Knight Rises has also been making flights from Inverness Airport.

Feshie Bridge was reported as the location for filming earlier this month by Gavin Musgrove, editor of the Strathspey and Badenoch Herald.

It was not known if this week's activity at the gliding club was for scenes in the film, or preparation work ahead of proper filming."

Also, The Dark Knight Rises is seeking extras in the Pittsburgh area for an August 6 shoot. The extras will be used in a football game scene, involving the Gotham City high school team. Here's a description of the scene below.

"The scene we're in will be a football game, but not just any football game. We'll be cheering on the Gotham Rogues as they take on their rival team the Rapid City Monuments."

It isn't known how this scene will play out in the movie quite yet. CLICK HERE for information on how to become an extra in The Dark Knight Rises.

The Dark Knight Rises was released July 20th, 2012.
