Freep.com has posted an article saying that the Transformers movie franchise will spend part of this summer in the Motor City.
Transformers 3 plans to film in metro Detroit in August, according to Gabriela Gutentag, a spokeswoman for the movie. Filming there is expected to last two to three weeks.
Several locations — including Los Angeles, Chicago, Washington D.C., the Kennedy Space Center in Florida and overseas locales — will be employed in the latest edition of the popular action series from director Michael Bay.
Scenes for the first “Transformers” were filmed in Detroit, including at the Michigan Central Station. Bay also filmed scenes here for the 2005 movie “The Island.”
“Transformers 3” has been approved for the state’s tax incentives for filmmaking, according to the Michigan Film Office.
