Red Eye Chicago
To the Bat-set
I’m sad to report this is the final week of filming in the Windy City for “The Dark Knight.” On Sunday, several of the film’s stars, including Aaron Eckhart, Heath Ledger, Gary Oldman and Anthony Michael Hall filmed in the Financial District. Several extras posing as pedestrians and Gotham City police officers flooded Adams and LaSalle Streets.
The set contained Gotham City police cars, motorcycles and ambulances. The crew also set up a stage with a podium in front of rows of chairs outside of the Chicago Board of Trade building. (Perhaps for a Gotham City Town Hall meeting?) Oldman filmed a scene inside a police truck with a police escort. Even though filming continues this week, “The Dark Knight” wrap party is scheduled for Monday at Carnivale.
