Transformers 3 Location Update: Space Coast, Florida (Update)

Posted on 05-12-2010 at 11:14 AM by SilverOptimus under Transformers Movie (Just Movie) (All Transformers Movie News)
Space-Coast
Space Coast, Florida updated their Twitter account to let us in on an upcoming shooting for Transformers 3.

"Transformers 3 to film on Florida's Space Coast! Filming to begin September 2010!"


As we all know, this is where the Kennedy Space Center is.

UPDATE: Got the confirmation from the Kennedy Space Center that it will be the main location for the TF3 Shooting.

Brevard County Film Commissioner Bonnie King tells Central Florida on Demand that filming will last about 8 days in early September. She says location scouts have visited the area for 2-3 days at a time, looking at other areas to shoot. Those include Patrick Air Force Base, Space Coast Regional Airport in Titusville, Merritt Island Airport, Lone Cabbage Fish Camp in Cocoa, and a Cocoa beach house. Scouts also checked out some swamps and went into the woods.

Transformers 3 producers will be looking to cast extras from Florida's Space Coast as well.

Space Ghost?

september? thats a little late in the game
Autobot Burnout
This could mean a number of things, although being that a whole lotta rockets are launched in that area makes me think Optimus is gonna get strapped to a really large rocket, possibly an old Saturn V model.

Maybe we will see a little Space Shuttle Door Gunner action before NASA gets gutted. I will keep my eyes peeled.

Megatronwp38
Neat.

I'd love to see Omega Supreme as a NASA crawler transport vehicle. Isn't the final shuttle launch slated for September? Hmm...

EDIT: Discovery's last launch (second to last overall) is scheduled for September 16th. Could be a small unit filming with some TF3 vehicles in the foreground or something during "pick-up" shooting.

I WANT THIS.

Please let there be some space vehicle alt modes in TF3. Please!

Astrotrain (while unlikely to be in TF3) would rock!

Perhaps we could be seing Omega Supreme in TF3....... * fingers crossed *
Spin-Out

If that ends up being the case,then how is that good? If anything Transformers 3 should have more Transformers screen time wether they are duking it out or are standing around talking to others or between their selves.

Well its Becuase i dont care if the humans have more screentime, But i dont want a space movie becuase if its a Fulyl Space movei then it would be a Full 86 remake and i want to see something new, Not a remake, But i do Want to see unicron

I'd be happy with a Robot fight at kennedy space center.

I mean Astrotrain or Omega Supreme are possibilitys. But just to avoid disappointment: This information just says they will be filming at space coast.

So some actor shots from the command center. (keeps the humans away from the action mech fans) And some explosions around the launch site. To be filled in with CGI robots later.

Its a decent 80s style final battle location. Thumbs up.
DecepticonsRule
It'd be cool to see Astrotrain or Omega Supreme in TF3
Pengutron
Aw, sweet! I'm going to see if I can get in on this! I missed working on ROTF by a month last time.
shroobmaster
Blah! More human stuff!!!!
Prime82
wonder if that means no filming in south florida:-(
Lurkertron
I can smell Omega Supreme.

Here's an old sketch of a Crawler/Shuttle movie concept I did.



Might see a fight between Omega and perhaps a Supercarrier bot (Tidal Wave).
It is on the coast after all.
Supremus
So now we're getting recycled footage from Pearl Harbor AND Armageddon. Grrrrreat.
Poho
Astrotrain is the only logical answer
Liselotte
Skylynx god dam it!
TwinSpin
I'm not getting too excited. Wether this means Bay will do a homage to Astrotrain, Omega or Sky Lynx - he'll completely eff it up like he did Devastator. What a waste of a concept. Seriously! Can you believe that was the Devastator we got onscreen? Could have been so amazing and it was a non-event, that devastated nothing except eating sand and breaking some 3,000 year old masonry.

After TF2's suckitude, I have no faith in Bay - but I still hope smarter people steer him right.

This is a fun concept - i like the scale and basic shapes

With the whole GO Home Autobot graffiti and the fact that they are filming near NASA, I think TF3 could have recycled some story ideas from a old G1 episode Megatron's Master Plan
ae_productions
Please let there be a script, and please, please, please robots in Transformers 3.

Been wondering the same thing, and as good as that episode is to me i hope its not a rehash of it for TF3
UltraPrimal
I wonder if they'll be shooting during the BotCon tour.

Omega Supreme?

Might also have something to do with the Autobots returning to Cybertron. Rumor is it will play a role in the movie.
TRANS+CRAZY
Interesting... but I thought they were going to be done filming in July or so?

If they were recycling footage, they wouldn't have to film anything.
Hiro Prime
Given how Bay TF's usually look, Sky Lynx would work best in my opinion. I'd love to see an Omega Supreme, but after seeing Devastator, I just don't think we'll see a robot that big in human proportions in the movies.
Waveride
Not sure if this is real but i keep reading on Twitter a certain mention of filming being in Bakersfield, CA this weekend.

Ok seriously. I have to go to Bakersfield, Ca this weekend and I have no clue where it is. I could use a GPS right now.

I'm at Kennedy Space Center right now waiting for Atlantis's launch today (anyone else joining the festivities?).

I saw a helicopter circling around here a while ago, flying sorta low, but that's probably useless info to y'all. Most likely just some sort of observation chopper (it looked just like the TF1 Sector 7 choppers, only red with a white stripe on the tail).
Rayzilla Prime
Double post. And ignore that part I said about the chopper.
