More Batman sightings?

08.26.07 | admin | In streeterville, film

The Streeterville area around Ohio/Grand/Illinois and Lakeshore Drive to McClurg was just shut down aroud 10:00 PM from all traffic including pedestrians for about half an hour while several helicopters came for a stunt scene being shot there.  What movie could it be?  The obvious guess is, the Dark Knight, the new Batman movie being filmed all over Chicago which is pumping $45 million of much needed dollars and jobs, like the kids being hired to tell residents of buildings in affected areas to go back inside or telling them they can’t go directly home.  Filming for the movie “Wanted” with Angelina Jolie has already ended in Wrigleyville and, I believe, Chicago.  I guess with the US dollar so cheap compared to the Canadian dollar film crews are finding deals in places south of the border that are also willing to give other breaks on taxes and such like Chicago.
