Yesterday, we reported that The Dark Knight Rises will not be shooting amidst the Occupy Wall Street protest. Today, a new report indicates that the production will be shooting on Wall Street this weekend, as well as in midtown Manhattan. Here's an excerpt from the report below. Be warned, though, this excerpt does contain potential plot spoilers in the second paragraph, so read on at your own risk.
"One of our readers, RL, spotted No Parking signs for "MAGNUS REX" (TDKR's working title) filming on West 58th Street between 7th and 5th Ave in NYC on Friday, 10/28 for 6 AM to Midnight.
In addition to this new location info, we also heard a few rumors about the big scene they'll be filming on Wall Street. There are expected to be more than 1000 extras used in the scene which will be set in a Gotham that has been taken over by Bane. After months of chaos the cops return and the "good guys" battle it out with the "bad guys" for the streets of Gotham. Tom Hardy and Christian Bale are both expected to be there in full costumes as Bane and Batman. Its also rumored that they will begin rehearsing for the shoot in a couple day at Riis Park."
As mentioned above, the plot information should be considered a rumor, since it has not been confirmed yet. The New York production leg of The Dark Knight Rises will run from October 29 through November 11.
