The filmmakers are still referring to it as The Intimidation Game, but the movie known to be the fifth installment in the Batman series is set for location shooting on the north end of the Amstutz Expressway this weekend.
According to a schedule released by the city Tuesday, Warner Bros. film crews will begin preparation work on the Amstutz at 7 a.m. Saturday, requiring closure of the roadway from Grand Avenue to Greenwood Avenue until approximately 9 p.m.
The Amstutz will then be closed at the following times to allow shooting of chase scenes along that 1.5-mile stretch of the roadway: Sunday from 8 a.m. until Monday at approximately 7 a.m.; Monday from 6 p.m. until Tuesday at approximately 7 a.m.; and Tuesday from 6 p.m. until Wednesday at approximately 7 a.m.
According to the producers, filming will include the use of a helicopter that will hover between Grand and Greenwood, during what will likely be a chase scene involving the Batmobile. Lights are also slated to be installed along the route.
