Exclusive – Is The Dark Knight going large at Pinewood?
We’ve been sent a little bit of info from our neighbours at Marvel Movie News, which they received from Ian H, a source they trust, about pre-production on The Dark Knight Rises.
It seems that construction will soon begin on the Pinewood Studios backlot of what their man says “is going to be one of the biggest sets ever built at the studios in Pinewood since it’s been open.”
Bearing in mind that Nolan has traditionally stuck closely to real locations for the past two Batman films, could this mean that he is planning some kind of huge destruction-ridden or FX-heavy set-piece that just couldn’t be done on real streets?
We’ll try to get more details and bring them to you when we get it!
The Dark Knight Rises is directed by Christopher Nolan, and stars Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle/Catwoman and Tom Hardy as Bane. The film is due for release on July 20th, 2012.
