The Dark Knight Rises production is looking to occupy Wall Street. The producers have found a simple way to film protest scenes without having to pay a ton of extras — film at an actual protest. A casting call for the upcoming sequel has revealed that the Occupy Wall Street protests will be a possible filming location. The shoot was planned months ago but it’s somewhat advantageous that the protests will tie into what is already in Christopher Nolan‘s script.
Advantageous for everyone except the downtrodden 99 Percenters who are about to have their protest crashed and their likenesses bootlegged without pay. But, hey, not everyone can be rich. (LA Times)
