Warner Bros issued a press release last week for Christopher Nolan's Batman: The Dark Knight Rises. It was basically a run-of-the-mill production date confirmation but it did include some shooting in Scotland. Alas today news comes forth that explains why Nolan is taking his last Bat flick to Scotland and The Daily Record knows why. Hit the jump for the details.
The Daily states:
"Glasgow is to be transformed into Gotham City in the latest Batman film sequel. Director Christopher Nolan will use shots filmed around Glasgow in some of exterior scenes in the final instalment of his Batman trilogy. Nolan, who previously used Chicago to depict Gotham, wanted to use several different locations to create a Gotham nobody would recognize. A source revealed: “He plans to use various cities to provide a mash-up of what Gotham will look like. “Glasgow was location-scouted for the last film Dark Knight, though in the end it wasn’t used. This time, Chris already has several scenes in mind.“ The city centre architecture is hugely impressive. But he will be filming in secret."
