2011_1_10_batman.jpg Although some were holding out hope that Christopher Nolan's sequel to The Dark Knight would do some filming in Chicago, is being cited by many as saying that, when filming begins this year, Detroit will fill in for Chicago. But take that with a grain of salt.

A couple of months back New Orleans was announced as a locale for the sequel, along with some filming in Los Angeles and the UK. If Nolan, Christian Bale and company do film elsewhere, Chicago would lose out on an economic boost. Filming of The Dark Knight in Chicago provided $40 million to the local economy.
