    reported over at collecticon.org, looks like businesses on michigan avenue in downtown chicago have been receiving notices that the street will be closed for filming for 3 days! A while back I posted an article from collecticon.org saying it was going to be rumored that the movie would be filmed on the street. looks like collecticon came through. here's another report, let's hope it's true so that we can post pictures and videos during the filming.

    yeah i'm sure there will be plenty of pics and videos once they start. it'll be pretty hard not to film something in downtown chicago. i know collecticon will be down there and so will i. when they fimed both batmans and wanted, most of the shooting took place at night so being around the set was hard as i had work in the mornings and what not. being that the last couple of transformers movie have mostly daytime filming, this is going to be awesome and hard to miss and should be in plain site, at a distance i bet.

    lol, just for shits and giggles, collecticon loves photoshopping.

    Screamer thinks he's Inferno. Watch him call Megatron "my queen" in this one.

    I kid, I kid.

    there was an other article (well a few) that talked about TF3 using an old steel mill which is by my house and i drive by everyday afterwork. for the most part some of the parking lots were open, but lately i've been seing more cars parked on the opposite side of the huge parking lots and away from some offices (ryerson mill office still works out of there, but not a lot)
    ‘Transformers 3′ begins filming in Chicago on Juy 4

    i'll snap a few pics on monday or something to see what i'm talking about. or a vid.

    that's exactly what i'm thinking about.

    I love that scene so much. Most badass transformation in the movie series IMO.

    Whoa, sounds like they'll be shooting some epic stuff... if they're going to literally shut down the Magnificent Mile for 3 and a half days.

    All I can say is, "Take THAT Oprah!" (She shut it down for a day for her show.)
