Transformer 3 at Wabash and Wacker

Probably a bit late for most to take advantage of but now we know were Transformers 3 production is working this weekending in the city of Chicago. Chicago Breaking News reports they have set up shop at East Wacker Drive from Wabash Avenue to State Street. Just in case you need proof thanks to Jonnyroobs for the two pictures in this post as the set is prepped. He didn't spot any Transformers vehicles but did see Shia's stunt double on the prop structures. Also NBC Chicago has a nice gallery of images from filming last week. Thanks to Katie and DJ BigTyme Beats for the links.

Filming of the "Transformers 3" movie is continuing this weekend, and parts of Upper Wacker Drive are closed and 11 downtown CTA buses rerouted until early Monday morning.
East Wacker Drive closed from Wabash Avenue to State Street about 8 p.m. Friday and will remain closed until 5 a.m. Monday, officials said. Wabash Avenue is closed between Wacker Drive and East Lake Street until 5 a.m. Monday.

Chicago fire and police personnel will supervise special effects and pyrotechnics, including simulated gunfire, smoke, fireballs and explosions, officials said.

During brief periods from 8a.m. until 8 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, helicopters will be used for aerial photography, officials said.

  1. I was there today as well and I happened to catch Shia and Patrick Dempsey shooting a scene (the same spot where the pic at the top was taken) of them fighting eachother. Shia at one point plulled out a gun on him but didn't pull the trigger.

  5. Yeah its suppose to be from the top of the building. I'd imagine theres a Bot fight sequence cause of how much the helicopter filmed up towards the top of that building. The pic at the top was taken in the morning, same time i was there. And when I saw the Shia and Dempsey fight it was a little after 2. They did it a few times of course.

    Maybe thats what I saw the other day. I couldnt tell cause of the angle I was at. Plus the helpers kept making us move. I thought that it was Shia and Dempsey. But those were the only two guys I could see.
