Transformers 3 To Film In Detroit In August

detroit

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.

    It's an hour drive from my part of Michigan, but I might see if I can get there to try and get some videos of them filming.

    Cool, but I wonder when exactly in August they'll be filming in Detroit. The article didn't really say, just 2-3 weeks in August.

    I said it in an earlier thread, but they should buy up some of that cheap Detroit real estate for explosion fodder. You sometimes hear about derelict houses selling for a couple dollars. Crack dens and the like.

    A lot of that stuff is due for demolition anyway... why not let Decepticons to do the work?
