"The Dark Knight" Will Summer in Chicago

by | February 1, 2007 | Comments

"The Dark Knight," which is the highly-anticipated sequel to the awesome "Batman Begins," will be shooting in Los Angeles, Hong Kong, and England … but apparently the cast and crew will be spending much of their summer in the fine city of Chicago, Illinois.

IGN Movies informs us that, according to RealChicago.com, Warner Bros. has scheduled 13 weeks of shoot time in the Windy City. The production is going under the title "Rory’s First Kiss," but those ‘in the know’ are well aware that this is just a code name for "The Dark Knight."

Batman isn’t new to Chi-town, of course. Sections of "Begins" were lensed there as well, only you might not recognize the city, what with all the set dressings and digital paint-brushing and mood lighting.

Starring pretty much the entire gang from the original (minus Katie Holmes but plus Heath Ledger), "The Dark Knight" is scheduled for a Summer 2008 release. And it will be a smash hit.
