The daily news reports and fan photos from the Pittsburgh shoot of The Dark Knight Rises, the final film in writer/director Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy, turned somewhat comical yesterday as a stuntwoman for Anne Hathaway’s Catwoman character lost control of her giant motorcycle and wrecked an IMAX camera.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Hathaway’s stunt double was riding the motorbike down the steps of a Carnegie Mellon University building when she lost control and plowed into the expensive camera.
No one was hurt in the accident.
The Catwoman crash might be the highlight so far of the elaborate shoot that included Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and his teammates including Hines Ward, Willie Colon and Maurkice Pouncey joining the film over the weekend for a big scene at Heinz Field.
Previous fan photos focused on Batman (Christian Bale) battling the villainous Bane (Tom Hardy) as well as newcomer Marion Cotillard as the mysterious Miranda Tate.
"It's (Pittsburgh) a very beautiful city on a very impressive scale and that hasn't lost its human scale," Nolan added. "That is very impressive and very hard to find."
