surprise surprise! shia and i were filming some more scenes the other day. can't wait for everyone to see :)Tyrese on the shoot and pickups with SciFi Wire:
"Yeah, we did some new scenes, some new shots, got to the set around 10 this morning," Gibson said in a group interview. "Today we officially wrapped Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen. Any missing pieces there were, we picked them up today. They're going to go ahead and put it in the chop shop and put the magic around it and go ahead and add it into the film."
What exactly were the pickup shots you did today?
Gibson: I can't really speak on it, but that was a nice try.
Did you get to go to Egypt?
Gibson: No, I didn't get to go to Egypt. I was supposed to go, but you won't be able to tell I'm not there. ...
Will you be part of the third one?
Gibson: I didn't die in 2. I can tell you that.
Based on Megan Fox's outfit, Shia's burnt shirt (as seen here), the background, and set, this appears to be pickup shots for the Egyptian desert sequences. They may also being doing pickups for Princeton based on the outfits of some of the other people on set. The magic of Hollywood where one scene has the potential to have been crafted from literally around the world. Thanks to Megatron for the video link.
