The Dark Knight Rises in Detroit

Apparently Detroit beat out the ol' Windy Apple as the site for filming the next installment of the reimagined Batman series. From Reel Chicago:
SORRY TO SAY that Detroit won out over Chicago as a location for writer/director Christopher Nolan’s latest “Batman” entry, “The Dark Knight Rises.” Instead of shooting here, as originally announced, the movie will film in Detroit. Starting in May, it also will shoot in New Orleans, and two locations in the UK.

It stars Christian Bale, Tom Hardy, Gary Oldman, Morgan Freeman and Michael Caine.

Looks like we should start looking for Christian Bale prowling around town starting in May.


  1. Sorry to say, indeed.

    I'm in favor of starting a Bale Cam.

  2. It's super exciting. The same Reel Chicago article says:

    "REELMICHIGAN: GEORGE CLOONEY’S “IDES OF MARCH” thriller starts shooting in Detroit in March, with A-list actors

    Evan Rachel Wood, George Clooney, Jeffrey Wright, Marisa Tomei, Max Minghella, Paul Giamatti, Phillip Seymour Hoffman, and Ryan Gosling."

  3. I have a feeling that I'll be spending a lot of time in Detroit this spring break.
