Transformers 4 to Film in Chicago?

Transformers4DecepticonLogo

It’s time for a pinch of salt, as we have another Transformers 4 rumor from the Transformers Live Action Movie Blog that the next entry in the Transformers Live-Action film franchise will be returning to Chicago for filming.

It seems that Transformers franchise might be returning to Chicago. This weekend while in the city participating in an advance screening and doing press interviews to promote Broken City. Mark Wahlberg answered questions about Transformers 4. A source reports hearing that Wahlberg said he is house hunting for a rental to use while filming Transformers 4 in the Chicago area during the summer.

The idea really isn’t much of a stretch as Michael Bay frequently praised the city when they hosted him while filming his huge scenes for Transformers: Dark of the Moon that often required him to alter and close many major streets. Since the fourth movie takes place 4 years after Dark of the Moon, its possible that the Decepticons are not yet done with the city or possibly fallout from the siege has a part in the film. No other details yet but hopefully learn more as the local press post their interviews closer to the January 18 release date of Broken City.

As with all movie rumors, please take any and all information prior to an official announcement with a grain of salt. Be sure to keep it here on TFW2005 as we bring you the latest Transformers news, including news for the upcoming movie, as it happens.

    Hmmm, I was hoping that we won't get another city battle.

    Not exactly. Michael Bay said that TF4 takes place 4 years after DOTM. And if indeed Mark is looking for a house there then the shoot will be pretty long.

    I actully don't mind if they return to Chicago, the location for the final battle for DOTM was one of the few things I felt Micheal Bay did right, I felt like it was the perfect place for them to fight, plus all the damage and desturction and ships in the air helped with it, although I wish they did somewhere new, I won't mind if they return.

    I have to agree I won't mind having TF4 in another city.

    Chicago is alright but I'm sure they're other US cities that won't mind the publicity.
