Michael Caine speaks..The Dark Knight Rises Shoots In May, 2011.Posted: November 23, 2010
The latest update from Sir Michael Caine, is that the eagerly anticipated ‘Dark Knight Rises’, will begin shooting in May, next year. A quote from Sir Caine himself, includes more details:
“Emma [Thomas], the producer, said we’d get the script in January. Christopher said: ‘Script in January, shoot in May, finish in November’.”
This is exciting enough news for any Batman fan and fans of ‘The Dark knight’, which was released in 2008. Although it isn’t known where any of the filming will take place, another rumour has emerged, that New Orleans could be a location, and images of Chicago for representations of ‘Gotham City’, which were were used for the The Dark Knight. However, Wally Pfister, cinematographer, had abolished the rumours of the use of New Orleans. He also mentioned that the films would most likely only be shot partially in IMAX. A bit of a shame if you ask me.
In terms of the cast, we know that Christian Bale and Michael Caine will be returning as the Dark Knight and Alfred, and it is expected that Gary Oldman will be resuming his role as Commissioner Gordon..hopefully. Tom Hardy, has also been cast in a role too, which many are eagerly awaiting to see the outcome of. There has also apparently been a cast of female roles for the main villain, and also love interest, although this hasn’t been fully confirmed yet. As of yet, all we can really do is keep waiting for further information, once the scripts are due.
