The Dark Knight Rises is Headed for Glasgow

The Daily Record is reporting that Glasgow will be transformed into Gotham for The Dark Knight Rises:

Dark Knight Rises, which sees Christian Bale return as the caped crusader, will be filmed in the city, with Anne Hathaway and Michael Caine among the cast.

Director Christopher Nolan will use shots filmed around Glasgow in some of exterior scenes in the final [installment] of his Batman trilogy.

Shooting has already begun in London and Croydon and will head north for several scenes early next month.

Nolan, who previously used Chicago to depict Gotham, wanted to use several different locations to create a Gotham nobody would recognise. A source revealed: "He plans to use various cities to provide a mash-up of what Gotham will look like.

"Glasgow was location-scouted for the last film Dark Knight, though in the end it wasn't used. This time, Chris already has several scenes in mind."
