    In a recent thread posted here, somebody on the set of Wall St 2 said LaBeouf told him filming starts in July.

    No. For ROTF, they started filming in June 2008 for a July 2009 release, and took time off in the middle in case of an actors strike. ILM is likely already working on pre-production of robot models and such though.

    Hopefully they take a little more time to write a good story/script this time.
    From what I could tell from th Blu Ray extras, they wrote ROTF in a hotel room in two weeks. (and it shows)

    Past evidence begs to differ.

    ROTF made millions of dollars, they're not gonna change a thing. If anything this time they'll write TF3 in one week in a hotel room

    They start on the CGI before they start filming. CGI has to be set up and prepared just as a film set has to be. Plus, any new characters are having to be designed and approved by Hasbro and the filmmakers.

    It's a safe bet that ILM is already hard at work on this.

    Middle of next year for actual actors. I'd imagine that CGI work will begin in a month or so, once they know what's actually going to happen in the film.

    There is tons and tons of work to be done before the first frame of film is shot on a project this big. Locations are being scouted, all the people who work on everything wardrobe to lighting have to be hired, a shooting schedule has to be worked out, ILM has to free computers that are working on other films right now. So yea to start the actual filming in the middle of next year isn't really dragging their feet or anything.

    Remember the delay was also because of the writer's strike. The lack of a script did push them back. I'm sure it will be sooner in this case. We just have to wait for a script the Bay likes.

    I think Bay told us a couple of times that Megatron wasn't going to be in it.

    That was the extent of his misinformation masterplan, heh.

    Transformers 3 is only in pre-production, and already people are asking when the filming's going to start?

    Next year, most likely in the summer. They got to have a script, decide on who the new characters are going to be, get all the actors on board, etc. before they could start filming... and that's probably going to take a while.

    I wouldn't be surprised if it starts in March or April. If I remember correctly that's when we saw sighting of Ironhide, Ratchet and Barricade last time around. The actual actors didn't get into it until June. I'm sure the availability of Princeton had something to do with that.

    I wonder how far into the future they'll go. Will Sam be out of college? Will he and Mikeala be married and have Daniel? Will Sam's mom blow pot into the baby's face? All legitimate questions for sure.

    Sometime next year. They're still in pre-production, and will be for some time. It all depends on how long it takes them to come up with the story and what not. They've probably already begun work on the CGI. Knowing Bay, they'll need all the time they can get to get everything ready.
