Pittsburgh Will Be Gotham for The Dark Knight Rises!


The Pittsburgh Post Gazette is reporting that The Dark Knight Rises is heading to Pittsburgh this summer to film the third installment in Christopher Nolan’s Batman movie franchise.

“Pittsburgh is a beautiful city,” the London-born director said in a statement. “We have been able to find everything we were looking for here, and I am excited to spend the summer in Pittsburgh with our final installment of Batman.”

“We are thrilled to be welcoming the Batman film to Pittsburgh, and eager for the economic impact that our city will experience,” Mayor Luke Ravenstahl said in a statement. “This is another example of the growing film industry in our community, and we will be rolling out the red carpet for them.”

Dawn Keezer, director of the Pittsburgh Film Office, said the Warner Bros. production could be in town for four to six weeks shooting in Downtown and nearby.

“They’re still nailing down actual locations but what they really fell in love with was the diversity of architecture and the gorgeous buildings that we still have in Downtown Pittsburgh and the surrounding areas,” she said.
