Production Update #1: Forts, and Wells, and IMAX! Oh My!

The Dark Knight Rises Filming in India

Principle photography on The Dark Knight Rises officially started last week in Jodhpur, India. Filming began on Friday, May 6th at the Mehrangarh Fort with Christian Bale, and sightings of Josh Pence and others. Helicopters, IMAX cameras (which might not have worked), and green screens were in use during the shoot. Our Indian friends tell us that Christopher and his crew worked long 14 hour days in the smouldering Indian heat. A fair share of photos from the shoot have popped up online via Twitter, Facebook, and Photos of a bearded Bale and other odd characters have brought up wild speculation about just what was being filmed there at Mehrangarh Fort. The conversation sparked hundreds of replies on our forums in just a few hours. We invite you to join us in the fun and speculation.

As of yesterday, the filming in India had wrapped, and Christopher and his cast and crew flew back to London — according to the Times of India. Filming will likely continue in the UK at the Cardington airship sheds in Bedfordshire before moving to Pittsburgh and Los Angeles later in the summer. Check out the full story below to check out the photos.
