Judging by two tweets, it appears that Transformers 3 production is now underway in Sherman Oaks, California and with a new cast member, Kym Whitley.
Kym Whitley tweeted:
Working on Transformers 3 today, a little nervous...always when starting a new project. I have said the Lords prayer 12 times.Meanwhile Melody Mooney tweets:
Transformers 3 begins shooting on our street today. Info sheet lists: simulated gun fire and an assassination of humans by. Two Robots.Mooney's twitter account lists her location as Sherman Oaks, CA which is why the assumption that is the area TF3 production is working. Above is all the details available but isn't the Witwicky's home in Sherman Oaks? I don't think their location was ever specified so may be reaching.
Kym Whitley is a long time character actress who has done guest parts on many television shows over the years (and a few movies) including Til Death, The Boondocks, The Parkers and more. I assume her role is likely a brief appearance and not as a main cast member.Melody Mooney is known from "Who Wants to Be a Superhero" reality show and unlikely cast in the movie. She is just at the right place at the right time.
