Transformers 3 in New York?

For the last few weeks, Transformers: Dark of the Moon has been filming in Los Angeles and now it seems that production may move to New York City, at least going by a possible casting call for the movie. From On Location Vacations:
Grant Wilfley Casting is seeking the following for background work on TRANSFORMERS 3: the Dark of the Moon:

* Arabic/Middle Eastern, South Asian/East Indian, and African men and women with traditional ethnic wardrobe for work on Nov. 12 or Nov. 13.

Email a recent picture and contact information to casting@gwcnyc.com. Write the role for which you are submitting in the subject line of your email. Filming the week of November 8 in NYC.
This is a different casting company then used for previous extra calls. Usual caveats about scams and the like with the biggest being any requests for money makes it a fraud. Maybe it is a quick pick-up scene but highly doubt it is a major sequence or they would have fit it into the schedule when moving all the Transformers vehicles, pyrotechnics and the like all over the country when filming during the summer. Gearing that up again would be very expensive making the standing NY set in LA a better alternative if a large scale action sequence was needed.

  4. "Arabic/Middle Eastern, South Asian/East Indian, and African men and women with traditional ethnic wardrobe... "

    That sounds so very, very, stereotypical. I just hope it's some kind of parade scene in the film or something. Like with the Berger episodes in G1, where the Autobots are heroes, and then get turned on (something close to that'll be in the film anyway, I guess)...

  5. Still filming in November is not a good sign. The movie is going to look rushed as hell.. if the CGI will be as bad as that on Avatar just to be done in 3D then the movie will flop.

  10. @Anonymous 11/05/2010 10:23 AM: Avatar had an awful CGI and useless 3D. The best 3D belongs to Resident Evil 4 Afterlife. The best mechanical CGI belongs to Transformers2. The best organic CGI belongs to District9.

  13. If i saw Prime or Ratchet cruising down broadway, i'm pretty sure my jaw would drop. Hell I wouldn't even mind seeing the Twins, just to get a bit of that Bay action in the 5 boroughs.
