CHICAGO – I have received information detailing specifically where and when “The Dark Knight” will be filming in Chicago on Wednesday, June 27, 2007. This comes courtesy of Jeremy Farmer:

Helicopter filming will continue on June 27. The schedule is as follows:

11 a.m. to 2 p.m.: A helicopter will be flying over the Chicago River in the vicinity of the Wabash bridge. All filming except for one shot will be at 500 feet. The Wabash bridge will be closed during this filming.

4 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Navy Pier: A helicopter will be concentrated over the lake and filming at Navy Pier at dusk. The helicopter will film a shot over Sears Tower.

9 p.m. to 11 p.m. at 200 West Randolph: A shot of the roof of the parking garage set will be filmed.

If anyone has a chance to capture any photos or video today, please e-mail me from the link on the top right of the site.

10:56 a.m. update: This information comes courtesy of this link:

On Tuesday, June 26, the “Gotham National Bank” signs were back up on the north entrance of [a Chicago post office building]. I wonder if these are for reshoots or additional scenes. There were several large lighting trucks parked out back as well.

On the afternoon of Monday, June 25, there were flatbed trucks on the loading dock [at the same post office]. A crew was hauling in a “Gotham Police Department” sign from one of the trucks.

The style of the sign exactly matched the signs the Chicago Police Department use on their stations. It was similar to how the Gotham license plates are an exact knockoff of Illinois plates.

Here’s a link to recent thoughts from Christian Bale on the progress of the film.

12:12 p.m. update: I just received this update from the same person who sent me the 10:14 a.m. information:

They have lots of orange jumpsuits there. They are working on a boat scene.

These people in orange are reported to be prisoners.

  • The Projects

    CHICAGO – The legacy of public housing is one of the strangest forces of karma in the City of Chicago. For example, sites that were once some of the roughest and most neglected housing for the poor now contain luxury condos. It is the people of those former hellholes that still remember the sorrowful history of what they once called home. The American Theater Company (ATC) have gathered these stories for the poignant and extraordinary “The Projects.”

  • Gambler, The 2

    CHICAGO – Browsing Dostoyevsky titles with consideration for proper roles for Mark Wahlberg, one might expect the Beantown hero to take on an adaptation of “The Idiot” before anything like “The Gambler.” After all, while Wahlberg has proven to be a diverse screen force - one who has well-grown past his Funky Bunch days - he often leans towards goofy men, or at least goofy men in goofy movies.
