Daniel Sunjata, Burn Gorman, Diego Klattenhoff have joined the cast of The Dark Knight Rises. Daniel Sunjata, Burn Gorman, and Diego Klattenhoff join the cast of The Dark Knight Rises (2012) to fill out its various minor roles. Daniel Sunjata will play a “courageous special forces operative”. I’m guessing Daniel Sunjata is allied with the Gotham City police. These three actors join the cast of Christopher Nolan‘s third Batman film that already includes Christian Bale, Gary Oldman, Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine, Anne Hathaway, Tom Hardy, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Juno Temple, Josh Pence, and Marion Cotillard.
Production will begin soon in Pittsburgh, which it seems, will “play” Gotham this time around – taking over from Chicago in Batman Begins and The Dark Knight. That doesn’t mean the threequel won’t include aerial footage or establishing shots of the Windy City’s skyline, but the street footage will apparently consist primarily of material shot in Pennsylvania.
Chicago must not be pleased with Christopher Nolan’s location choice. That is a lot of income that is not going into Chicago’s pocket. Regardless of the roles Daniel Sunjata, Burn Gorman, and Diego Klattenhoff play in the film, most people watching the film’s casting and production news updates are more interested in the covert parts Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Marion Cotillard will play in the film. I’m actually glad that segment of the film is being kept under wraps. It will make The Dark Knight Rises production stills and the first trailer that much better. What do you think of the latest The Dark Knight Rises casting? The Dark Knight Rises is scheduled for release in US theaters on July 20, 2012.
