The Journey Sentinel has provided an update on Transformers 3 plans for planned shoot in Milwaukee, Wisconsin from July 12-13th. It seems that shoot at the Milwaukee Art Museum will occur as schedule but the filming at Tower Automotive plant has hit a snag and will be delayed until August, after the Chicago portion of filming is completed. Despite the partial delay, a few details emerged about the shoot.
A crew of about 150 - including, presumably, director Michael Bay - will film dialogue scenes with several of the movie's principal actors Monday and Tuesday at the museum, which "I believe, is not a museum in the script," said Visit Milwaukee spokesman Dave Fantle.
In a voice message, Rocky Marcoux, commissioner of the Department of City Development, said the city was still in negotiations with the production company, and that filming at the Tower site wouldn't take place until after principal photography in Chicago is completed.
Marcoux said the Tower scenes would involve "a small amount of pyrotechnics," but "no damage would be done." Fantle said those scenes would be digitally enhanced for the completed film.
There is a chance for intermittent closures of Lincoln Memorial Drive during next week's filming at the museum, Fantle said.
