Transformers 3 Filmed in Israel?

A tweet from Tyrese Gibson yesterday to promote his new book "How To Get Out of Your Own Way" reveals that Transformers: Dark of the Moon filmed in Israel at some point (no idea when). In the tweet he posted, "I was in Israel and this was the very moment God revealed to me I should write a book!!" along with a picture of him leaning against a wall in his Epps costume. Just in case don't believe that isn't his outfit, be sure to check out Tyrese in costume (think minus the vest) when he was filming during the summer. Thanks to a source for the heads-up.

Update: Comments are reporting a picture is from Revenge of the Fallen. That is plausible since production did film in Jordan which is very close to Israel with the character wearing essentially an identical costume. Net result is until see the credit scroll that lists some of the shooting locations, file this one under unproven rumor (so will not be added to the cheat sheet). I don't keep up with Tyrese's non-Transformers life so unable to verify how long he has been working on the book. Two years for a self help book seems a bit long but he has been busy.

  9. at Anon 4:03, Anon 5:15 was saying that the above pic that shows Tyrese in Israel was from ROTF and as "Michael" said, and I think that may have been Bay himself, "Know your stuff before you talk. Israel was never used or filmed in for ROTF" meaning the above pic of Tyrese in Israel may indeed be from DOTM filming.

  12. ^^ dear mentally unstable person who keeps accusing everyone of being Bay/Paramount employee's,

    Im pretty sure you have it mixed up, as Optimus Prime owns this site, and Bay/Paramount runs the free world...get your facts straight !!! :D

    Don't you realize that you, yourself, are just a mere figment of Bay's imagination?? Just listen to the voices in your head...they will tell you all about it :D !!
