<em>The Dark Knight Rises</em> Will Be Filming on the Upper Level of the 59th Street Bridge

This Saturday and Sunday the upper level of the bridge will be closed while Christopher Nolan films the next Batman movie. Click the jump for details from an extra.

Over on the SHH message board a user was notified in an email that he'll be used as an extra for The Dark Knight Rises this weekend. He has provided the following details.
Thanks! Yeah, in the email it says this, which is VERY interesting:
"You have survived a long time isolated in Gotham City, Dress down in wintery clothing, some work-wear, boots, long trousers and hats and gloves, NOTHING NICE, you should look a bit like refugees."

Spent a long time islolated in Gotham City? See that makes me think that they are borrowing a lot from Batman: "No Man's Land." A story that focused on Gotham being ravished by an Earthquake and being sealed off from help. Bruce Wayne leaves Gotham to try and broker help for his city. For the people that think Bane's device will be an Earthquake machine of some sort, this info gives that speculation some meat.

The upper level of the 59th Street bridge will be closed on both Saturday and Sunday from 1 a.m. to 8 p.m. as crews film scenes for the upcoming "Batman: The Dark Knight Rises."

All traffic will be diverted to the lower level of the bridge.

Weather permitting, the movie shoot will also involve a low-flying helicopter late Saturday afternoon. -
