NJ.com reports that The Dark Knight Rises will be shooting in Newark, NJ next week, on November 3rd and 4th. Here’s an excerpt from the article:
“The Dark Knight Rises,” the third film in the popular Batman remake, will film on Nov. 3 and Nov. 4 including one day in City Hall, according to a city official.
The official said the city was incurring no cost and Warner Brothers would be paying Newark $43,500 for the use of City Hall as well as additional costs for police and fire personnel that will be required on site.
