CHICAGO – “Secret Scoop,” who first informed me of the upcoming Brach’s Candy building implosion for “The Dark Knight,” at 1:11 p.m. on Friday submitted updated information about this historic scene.

It is scheduled to happen between 10:30 a.m. and noon on Aug. 29.

This will be two buildings. The larger building is to be filled with flammable liquids and the second smaller, four-story building will be imploded.

This is the last big stunt for the film to be shot.

By the way, [Friday night’s] filming features five SWAT guys being thrown out of a window of a high-rise to hang while Batman goes about his business.

He doesn’t want to kill them. He just wants get them out of the way.

1:27 p.m. update: In a follow-up e-mail, I asked my source about the certainty of this new information. “Secret Scoop” said:

I just got off the phone with my contact before I e-mailed you. I even asked if that could be a false date just to throw off fans. [It’s real.]

4:10 p.m. update: Several people have written in asking me the address for this site. It is 401 N. Cicero Ave. in Chicago.
