Yes, that was actor Christian Bale lunching with wife Sibi Blazic on Monday at Big Bowl, 6 E. Cedar St. The couple sat in a quiet corner of the restaurant, sampling from the stir fry bar and sipping homemade ginger ale. Bale is in town through August filming “The Dark Knight,” the latest in the Batman series.
Today Chicago mayor Richard M. Daley held a brief press conference welcoming director Chris Nolan and crew back to Chicago for production on the upcoming Batman Begins sequel The Dark Knight. As the event began and Daley approached the podium, a clearly excited Nolan, Christian Bale and producer Chuck Roven filed into the room.
“[Chicago], I believe, is one of the greatest places in the world to make a movie,” Daley said in his opening statement. It’s apparent that Nolan agrees.
In the summer of 2004, Nolan and crew spent three weeks in Chicago filming scenes for Batman Begins; this time around they’re scheduled for an astonishing continuous twelve-week run. Because of that, TDK is set to be the biggest movie ever shot in Chicago in terms of money and jobs. The production will see the hiring of over 250 day-players and several thousand extras.
