    The UK film industry has lost out on producing upcoming Hollywood spectaculars such as the latest James Bond film Casino Royale due to uncertainty over film tax credit policy - reports Financial Director.

    [...]

    The next James Bond movie, Casino Royale, will be limited to one weeks' shooting in the UK. Officials have also expressed worries that the sequel to Batman Begins, the first of which was filmed in the UK, will go abroad.

    Casino Royale should be filmed in UK since it is a British movie and for Batman Begins sequel I don't care where it's filmed long as the movie is good.

    What will they do with the giant Gotham City sets at Shepperton if the filming leaves the UK? I thought that they didn't dismantle them because they were anticipating having to use them again for the sequel.

    maybe more of the movie this time will be filmed in chicago? ofcourse if i were the mayor of chicago i wouldn't want film crews blowing up man hole covers with steam coming out of it destroying downtown chicago. Good Idea for them to make a set of chicago. Well there a plenty of studios they can use like the WB lot unless its already taken for

    I hope this dosn't make it so that Gotham is a one street set with buildings pushed together like in Batman Returns.

    Exactly, which is why I think the studio took the future costs into consideration. I don't think TDK has anything to worry about.

    Some pics of the Liverpool waterfront, where they're scouting. Looks a lot like Nolan's Gotham.

    from those pics, I would like to see an amalgma of the Liverpool waterfront, and Chicago waterfront. I think it would show two different sides of the city where there are some newer buildings (chicago) mixed in with the rich heritage of a city that is as old and storied as Gotham (liverpool)

    ^That's a great point - maybe like the first film did a combination of London and Chicago, this time we'll have it expanded some more.........

    Its hard to tell what they want in Yorkshire or Glasgow cause theres quite a few possibilities.

    I don't think they're going to shoot in all 3 cities. This is Glasgow....

    Hmm, well they probably won't be coming to my hometown of York, unless Batman is visiting Diagon Alley

    Batman on top of York cathedral would be cool though:

    I doubt if anything will come of these rumours, theres always tonnes of location buzz in local papers. If Nolan does use any of them they'll probably be for very specific shots or even just one element of a composite. There's not alot in England that looks like Gotham. I thought they shot at Canary Wharf in London but I never noticed anything like that in the film. I was expecting them to film by the tube station. Liverpool might make an ok docks though, where did they film that stuff for Begins?

    Ah, I remember the York cathedral! We sang there for a choir trip to England. It's a beautiful building, and if they feature it in a Batman movie, I'd be able to recognize it, LOL.
