Many of the young men from Westminster are excited as they wait for callbacks. They were told they'd probably be needed for scenes shooting in early January.


Netflix is working with Westminster College to bring parts of the production of an upcoming film starring Christian Bale to campus.


"I am excited to announce that Netflix has been working with the College 

on a film production on our campus," wrote Vice President for Finance 

& Management Services in a campus email. "We are in the process of 

wrapping up the details of filming, and we hope to announce further 

information next week."


While a deal to shoot on campus has yet to be finalized


According to IMBD, 'The Pale Blue Eye' is a story is set in 1830 with a hero who is a veteran detective investigating murders with the aid of a young military cadet who will later become a world-famous author, Edgar Allan Poe. The film's screenplay is an adaptation of Louis Bayard's 2006 novel of the same name.


Industry trade publications report the production will begin in November in Pittsburgh at 31st Street Studios. In recent years, Bale has starred in 

other films shot in Western Pennsylvania, including 'The Dark Knight 

Rises''and 'Out Of The Furnace.'
