    Michael Bay announced on Shoot For The Edit (via Nelson), that shooting for TF3 will be taking place in Chicago and Moscow.

    whether or not they'll represent Chicago and Moscow is up for debate, like Philadelphia representing Shanghai (though Moscow will likely be Moscow)

    Very interesting news. The thought of Autobots fighting around the Kremlin is pretty cool though.

    You're thinking of Thief in the Night, right? I thought of that myself but figured it's a bit too over the top for live action.

    In Soviet Russia, robot transforms you?

    Obvious joke is indeed obvious, but I'm intrigued as to the shooting ideas here. Will Moscow be '2nd unit' stuff like Paris was in ROTF, or something more substantial?

    There better be a guy named Lord Chumley in a scene filmed in Moscow. Bonus points if he's trying to kill Optimus Prime for his head, or better yet his FACE.

    That's an cool thought indeed.

    But what about an Autobot/Decepticon fight around or in Chicago's Lincoln Park, Navy Pier, Solder Field or a brawl between Optimus Prime and Megatron on top of either the Willis Tower (AKA Sears Tower), the John Hancock Center or within The Loop. How cool would that be?

    I lived in Chicago myself during high school, so I have a fair knowledge of the city's landscape. Plus, my older sister currently lives there. Maybe she can get some good production pics for me.

    Second!

    And triple bonus if Prime gets ROYALY pissed off for it. 'Though for all we know, Bay will probably put it in about the first ten minutes of the movie. I wouldn't object to that.
