CHICAGO (Exclusive) – This report is short, sweet and juicy (especially if you’re in London and trying to see “The Dark Knight Rises” filming).

We’ve been reporting about director Christopher Nolan shooting the Farmiloe Building at St. John Street in London. In his last Batman film, Nolan will be transforming the building into the Gotham City Police Station. Since all the London action has been in the press, we also know security has upgraded from a McDonald’s hamburger to a filet mignon.

That’s why our new report below is critical. Londoners need to change where their eyes are looking.

This is the back gate to the Farmiloe Building:

Malmaison Hotel London
18-21 Charterhouse Square
London EC1M 6AH, United Kingdom
020 7012 3718

You need to send any photography guys to this location. They are sneaking cast in through the back gate of the Farmiloe Building, which happens to be next to this hotel. To be specific, they are not going in through the hotel but the gate next to it. The hotel is the best landmark in the area.

Nothing will happen at the front of the building. I went there today and saw them sneaking in a car. Plus there’s many more filming vehicles outside this Malmaison Hotel. The back gate entrance is public land. They can’t tell us not to take pictures there.
