I don't think taking it into Photoshop would be terribly efficient use of time pre-CS5. CS5's new HDR processing features might work for it, but it may still take longer than you want.
Perhaps you might try setting up copies of the footage in AE and use luma mattes to determine which parts of which layers to use.
