Christopher Nolan’s third Batman film, “The Dark Knight Rises” consumes fans’ attention as news breaks on the Internet. After a week where star Anne Hathaway accidentally injured a stuntman and a new set photo goes viral, “Rises” again stirs up fans as extras on need in Pittsburgh. The audition process for extras was in full swing on Friday and are scheduled through next week.
The Omni Hotel is the setting of Batman fervor as the ad stated “prisoners/thugs, guards, police officers, business men & women and sports fans” as SWD Casting posted the open call with “no acting experience needed.”
“The Dark Knight Rises” continues to streak into movie headlines as Anne Hathaway, Selina Kyle and her alter ego Catwoman, went over the top while during a fight scene.
A source told The Sun: “Anne got a bit carried away during a fight scene and mistakenly shoved the butt of a gun right into the actor’s eye socket. He came away with a massive black eye. Anne was mortified. It was all in good humor but the poor guy took quite a pummelling.”
The Dark Knight Rises recently launched a new casting call asking for ‘prisoners and thugs’ to star in the film.
A casting call for a Warner Bros. production mysteriously titled “Magnus Rex” seeks extras to play “victims and perpetrators within a city besieged by crime and corruption. Take part in the urban action adventure ripping through the streets of Pittsburgh from July 28 through Aug. 21.”
“Magnus Rex” is believed to be the working title for “The Dark Knight Rises.”
Lastly, this week intrigue swirled around the ambiguous masked stuntman photo posted on Den of Geek. This photo was taken during the shoot at Croydon, London.
