Transformers 4 confirmed to be filming in Chicago


There have been rumblings of various Transformers 4 filming locations of late, but now a location has come forward, confirmed. Chicago, according to Chicago Reel, is going to be a filming location – and according to their information, based on projected film dates of July to October and Transformers 4 star Mark Wahlberg looking for a four month house rental, we could be looking at Chicago being the main filming location for Transformers 4. With Transformers 4 being set 4 years after Dark of the Moon devastated the city with a full-on Decepticon invasion and plenty of Michael Bay’s trademark Bayhem, is the city ready for a second helping?

    As long as Bay's vision is flawed the location will always be irrelevant.

    Awesome I enjoy seeing movies being filmed so I can visit a Transformers set a second time. The explosions are awesome but it ends up being better than the actual film.

    Say what?

    Interesting, although I doubt Chicago will be a final battle city again, I'm curious as to what's up Bay's sleeve. Is it going to be considered the city of chicago in the movie and imply that there's still repairing to be done, or use the city as a means for a fictional city?

    So I guess if they are filming for like 4 months in Chicago it would be safe to assume that the majority of the movie will take place there.

    Sounds like this one is shaping up to be more of the same.
