The Dark Knight Rises Headed for India

Daily Bhaskar is reporting that filming for Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises will take place in India as well:

Vroom vroom…..and even before you realise Batmobile may have blazed past you at a thunderous speed, right here in Jodhpur. Wondering what we’re talking about? Get set to welcome DC Comics superhero Batman as he arrives in the Blue City.

The Information and Broadcasting Ministry has given the nod to US-based Cape Road Productions to lense the next Batman flick, ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ in Jodhpur.

Jodhpur is the second-largest city in the Indian state of Rajasthan. The city is known as the Sun City and is also referred to as the Blue City due to the blue-painted houses around the Mehrangarh Fort.

The Dark Knight Rises will start filming soon for a July 20, 2012 release.
