Transformers 3 Confirmed to Film in Chicago?

An anonymous news submitter has informed us that Chicago Studio City, the largest fiming complex between the coasts, has posted a sign indicating that Michael Bay's office can be located there at the studio. Given the report a few days ago that the director was scouting Chicago, Detroit, and Washington DC for Transformers 3, the sign seems to indicate that Chicago has been chosing as a filming location for the third movie.

Still possible. Hard to say what Bay would be using Chicago Studio City for. They have indoor studios as well as rentable office space.

And even if the majority of the movie does get filmed in Chicago, there can still be on-location shots in DC like Bay did in Jordan and Egypt.

Lots of building to go boom.

Given that the first two films used studios in and around LA, he's actually going smaller.
Batman
Sweet, a lot of the Dark Knight was filmed there. Looks like a great city, I'd like to visit there one day.
Chopperface
Wow, this is exciting - Bay's already got a script and is about to film in May? Seems so fast, but it took this long for ROTF.
ORIO
Cool. However I still think they should wait an extra year for this flick. What happened to Bad Boys 3? I'd rather see that then TF3 to be honest. Haha.

I hope Bay will film in New Mexico again when he does shoot the film. But I hope he films in the city and not on a Military base!
Sage o' G-fruit
A certain Nostalgia Critic will be very happy to hear this.
Nightwing24
Yes!!!! If this is true I'm def gonna be there!

Nice. Hopefully it's not all inside filming. It'd be sweet to plan a drive over, spend the weekend and maybe peep some movie being made.
Plus I love Chicago and their pizza is maybe the best thing I've ever eaten.
eyeballkid
Tidalwave should blow up the Taste of Chicago. Opening scene. If you see this Mr. Bay, and like it, send me a PM.
JetRaid
Awesome! I want to see all of those buildings explode
FMA1987
aww damn come to like richmond or dc that is what i am talking about
Solrac333
DC would be cool. Decepticons could destroy the monuments. Megatron could sit in Lincoln's chair.
Dran0n
buildings to go boom plz?
grimlock1972
A Deep Dish pizza needs to make a cameo in TF3 now
SuzyPrime
Hmmm, that's only six hours away. I'm tempted to go, hang out and see what there is to see.
DJW107PRIME
Cool all us at tfw2005 Squad can watch it be filmed.
Hiraga
Oh nice. I'll be in Chicago for a couple weeks in June, so maybe I could be an extra, or at least see the set and stuff. I wanna picture of me next to Bumblebee or Optimus...
blackout501st
awesomeness! cant wait for more info. just please. no more desert. except for white sands. there cool.
TerexO&K
If they were to start filming in Detroit, the entire western half of Downtown would have to be treated as part of L.A.(like it was in the first movie), or else it would be a major continuity error.

optimusprime42

Deceptigtar

Starscreamownz
Tell me when filming starts and I'll be on a flight to chicago =D.
Jason Blue Boost
Hopefully, a decepticon will take out Willis Tower and City Hall. I'll bring my twin turbo blue Tigershark Vette and Bay can use him as Blurr or Tracks.

Sero
I live only a few mile from Chi-Town, so it looks like I will be paying a few set visits. Who knows, maybe in this third one, I get to be an extra.

marshall dusty

Jason, when they use your car to film, lemme know. i got dibs on shotgun
RowdyHavokRolla
I'm already in line to be an extra and cant wait for the crappy sequel, my life will be complete knowing i was in a crappy trilogy
Deefuzz
If this is true I definitely see a day out with Tim Formas and Drew Eiden in my future.
TRANS+CRAZY
Darn, I was hoping for Bay to use Detroit for a filming site in TF3, so that I would have a good excuse to drive to Detroit and watch them shoot some scenes.

Oh well... it's Bay's decision where he wants to film at.
moreprimeland
I think Bay and company have learned how to hide from everybody by now so I don't imagine you would get to see much if anything..then he's also good at deflection, you think he's here, when really he's over there
