Pittsburgh Steelers Join THE DARK KNIGHT RISES This Weekend!

 Comment on Pittsburgh Steelers Join THE DARK KNIGHT RISES This Weekend!

The daily doses of production reports and fan photos continued to roll out of the Pittsburgh shoot of The Dark Knight Rises, the final film in writer/director Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy.

   In addition to the fan coverage, Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures also provided images and news from the highly anticipated movie.

   Today's Batman buzz revolved around Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and his teammates including Hines Ward, Willie Colon and Maurkice Pouncey joining the film this weekend for a big scene at Heinz Field.

  "I'm kind of getting everybody together," Roethlisberger told The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. "I heard it's going to be a neat thing at the stadium. I don't think it will be a big part. It's not like we're chasing Batman down or anything. It's something neat that in 10 years or 20 years we can tell our kids we were in a movie."

   Earlier, Nolan praised the city of Pittsburgh at a news conference prior to the start of production.

  "When you're making a large-scale action film that has to showcase the vitality and size of a large American city but also involves a certain amount of disruption to that city in order to make the action credible on screen, there needs to be a lot of cooperation from that city," Nolan said.

 Star Christian Bale joined returning cast members Gary Oldman (Commissioner Gordon), Morgan Freeman (Lucius Fox), Michael Caine (Alfred) and newcomers Anne Hathaway (Selina Kyle), Tom Hardy (Bane) and Marion Cotillard (Miranda Tate).

   Earlier, Nolan and cinematographer Wally Pfister announced plans to work with IMAX cameras during production that includes locations in New York, Los Angeles, England, Scotland, India in addition to the extended shoot in Pittsburgh.

   "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."
