Transformers 3 Confirmed to Film in Chicago?

transformers-3-chicago

An anonymous news submitter has informed us that Chicago Studio City, the largest fiming complex between the coasts, has posted a sign indicating that Michael Bay’s office can be located there at the studio. Given the report a few days ago that the director was scouting Chicago, Detroit, and Washington DC for Transformers 3, the sign seems to indicate that Chicago has been chosing as a filming location for the third movie.

    Still possible. Hard to say what Bay would be using Chicago Studio City for. They have indoor studios as well as rentable office space.

    And even if the majority of the movie does get filmed in Chicago, there can still be on-location shots in DC like Bay did in Jordan and Egypt.

    Given that the first two films used studios in and around LA, he's actually going smaller.

    Sweet, a lot of the Dark Knight was filmed there. Looks like a great city, I'd like to visit there one day.

    Wow, this is exciting - Bay's already got a script and is about to film in May? Seems so fast, but it took this long for ROTF.

    Cool. However I still think they should wait an extra year for this flick. What happened to Bad Boys 3? I'd rather see that then TF3 to be honest. Haha.

    I hope Bay will film in New Mexico again when he does shoot the film. But I hope he films in the city and not on a Military base!

    A certain Nostalgia Critic will be very happy to hear this.
