A BOF reader familiar with the situation sent me a few pics of what may be Pittsburgh filming locale for THE DARK KNIGHT RISES. Here’s what he had to say…

“A movie production asked Pittsburgh Public Schools to arrange for some of the district's closed school buildings to be made available to location scouts from a film company. Obviously that filmed turned out to be THE DARK KNIGHT RISES. Tours of four closed elementary schools were given, and of the four, I've enclosed photos of the one building in which they were 'very interested.' The building’s interiors seemed to be their priority.”

Hmm. If the building’s interiors are what they are interested in, I’m wondering of this closed school could turn out to be the Pittsburgh version of the Old Post Office in Chicago? The latter was where a lot of TDKR filming took place. Heck, the Old Post Office became a sort of mini-soundstage. In fact, I went there when I was on set back in June of 2007 and saw them film several scenes from THE DARK KNIGHT.
