Nelson here...According to an article on NWI.com, production in Chicago could start as soon as March but that remains unverified and strikes me as unlikely. Thanks to Katie for the link.
Spoke with Michael today and got some little info on TF3: there will be big action sequences shot in Chicago and Moscow this time around.
Also, Mike will match the amount raised by the TF2 DVD/Blu-ray sales for the Make A Wish Foundation.
Meanwhile, Chicago is still in the running for "Transformers 3." Director Michael Bay also is sizing up Detroit and Washington, D.C. for his latest big-budget invasion of alien robots. Imagine Bumblebee stomping through the Loop! We're talking genuine Monsters of the Midway. Shia LeBeouf and Megan Fox will reprise their roles as teen heroes Sam and Mikaela.The Make A Wish Foundation note is a reference to the signed edition of Transformers that Bay and Tyrese participated in for the organization last year. The indicated amount raised was estimated around $20,000.
