The Dark Knight Rises director Christopher Nolan teamed up with fellow ale drinker Christian Bale to suck it up in Pittsburgh. The duo with their british guts bellowed loudly how they are ready to begin three weeks of production in Pittsburgh starting Friday. Hit the jump for the details.
Mr Bale said he was looking forward to the production:
"and fighting on your streets as the Caped Crusader. We'll try to stay out of your hair as much as possible."
Mr Nolan jumped right in & spouted:
"When you're making a large-scale action film that has to showcase the vitality and size of a large American city but also involves a certain amount of disruption to that city in order to make the action credible on screen, there needs to be a lot of cooperation from that city. It's a very beautiful city on a very impressive scale and that hasn't lost its human scale that is very impressive and very hard to find. Thank you so much for your generosity of spirit and hospitality ahead of time, and we'll try and stay out of your hair as much as possible and hopefully leave with good memories for everybody."
Generally the press conference seemed quite strange almost as if the Brits were addressing the mob or something. Why so formal? Who's permission do you seek? Not even some Hans Zimmer playing in the background? No Gin? Both your names derive from Christ. Wtf is Bale's fashion sense like in the real world. The video comes via the great site CBM.
