Batman 3 and Inception Clarification

In my post on Batman 3 and Inception, I made qualified statements based on conversations with my source on the set of Burke and Hare.  This evening I was able to clarify what he said:

The sets for Batman 3 will be constructed toward the end of the year.

Inception, not The Dark Knight, was the film that was under budget, prompting Nolan to have the crew build an extra set (no word if said set was used in the film).

Simon Pegg, Andy Serkis, and John Landis Filming Dark Comedy

John Landis (An American Werewolf in London) is filming part of his latest film, Burke and Hare, in Edinburgh this week.  Andy Serkis (Gollum) and Simon Pegg (Shaun of the Dead) star, with imdb describing the film as:

A black comedy about two 19th century grave robbers who find a lucrative business providing cadavers for an Edinburgh medical school.

Looks like Landis is returning to his roots.  Below are pictures I snapped of the set as they’re getting ready to shoot this evening.

Trucks and lighting equipment.

Rustic carts and hay for that turn of the century look.

Dressing the set to hide the new. They also installed old wooden signs.

This is how you light a set when you can't get a cherry picker lighting kit in: it's a balloon with lights inside.

This is probably the angle they'll shoot the scene from, since there's a restaurant in the opposite direction.
