The Dark Knight Rises Production is Headed for New York

24 Frames reports that production for Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises is headed to New York for 14 days starting on October 29 and that the shoot may even include scenes shot at the "Occupy Wall Street" protests:

While the person who'd been told of the plans said the protests could figure into the production, they said that doesn't mean they will be included in the storyline.

In other words, Nolan, who's known for carefully planning out scenes months in advance, wouldn't necessarily be tweaking the script; he'd simply be using the protests as a backdrop or a stand-in for something that already exists in the film.

The New York leg should be the last for the film, which is scheduled to hit theaters on July 20, 2012.
