'Dark Knight Rises' To Film at Occupy Wall Street Protest

The 'Dark Knight Rises', which has been filming in Los Angeles in recent weeks, is gearing up to film in New York.

Production notes have revealed that the shooting will be moving to New York for two weeks starting on October 29.

And cast members have been told the shoot will likely include scenes shot at the site of the Occupy Wall Street protests.

According to the casting call, production has asked for actors who have "military or law enforcement training, weapons training, or martial arts training."

The characters will have been told they scenes will show "a city besieged by crime and corruption," which is along the lines of Occupy Wall Street's message.

It's unlikely that the film will feature the message of the movement, but it will probably use the backdrop of the protests to setup the civil disorder and discontent among citizens in the film.

Essentially, swapping hired extras with real protestors in the film.

'The Dark Knight Rises' will debut next summer on July 20, 2012.
