NineMSN reports that Hong Kong residents have been warned to expect a week of noisy evenings as a low-flying aircraft and helicopter film scenes for The Dark Knight.
Thousands of letters have been sent out by the film’s production company telling residents that a helicopter and a C130 aircraft will swoop low over downtown areas to film the city’s evening skyline.
The letter says the sound level will be similar to that of buses and promises that the production company will do all it can to “restore tranquillity … as early as possible.”
The Batman sequel will be filmed in Hong Kong from November 6 to 12. Christian Bale and Morgan Freeman are expected to be on location. IMAX cameras will be used for the shooting.
A major outdoor stunt for the Warner Bros. movie is to be filmed at the International Finance Centre (IFC) complex while the Peninsula Hotel will be used for other scenes.
