    PITTSBURGH,None - "Batman" fans and movie lovers alike have another exciting chance to be a part of "The Dark Knight Rises" when it begins filming in Pittsburgh late this summer.

    BeInAMovie.com is looking for spectators to cheer on the Gotham Rogues football team as they take on rival team the Rapid City Monuments.

    The scene will shoot from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 6 at Heinz Field, the Steelers confirmed Thursday.

    Heinz Field seats 65,050, but a spokesperson from Big Crowds Productions would not say exactly how many extras are needed.

    "There's sure to be surprises and twists galore in the city The Dark Knight and the rest of the cast (Anne Hathaway, Michael Caine, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Morgan Freeman, etc.) call home," boasts the web posting.

    The extras will not be paid but will receive free parking, food and raffle prizes.

    This call for extras is one of several pieces of "TDKR" information to make news this week.

    A teaser trailer was leaked online, an official teaser poster was released and so was shooting information for a big scene at Carnegie Mellon University.

    The CMU shoot reportedly involves, "an explosion, a prison break, precision stunt driving, gunfire, atmospheric smoke and controlled pyrotechnic explosions."

    Also, "One character drives a motorcycle through the fourth floor lobby, out the front doors and down the steps onto Fifth Ave," according to the post on the university's website.

    Scenes will be filmed at the intersection of Dithridge and Henry streets July 30-31, outside of the Mellon Institute on July 31, and inside of the Mellon Institute's fourth-floor entrance lobby on Aug. 3-4.

    Just minutes before posting this story, we also got word that the Batmobile has officially arrived in Pittsburgh, via photos from SuperHeroHype.com. Pretty cool!

    It looks like the hype and excitement for the last installment of Christopher Nolan's "Batman" films is only getting bigger and more exciting. Make sure to follow See & Be Seen on Facebook and Twitter for the latest details.
