Free Libary Set Report

As posted about the other day, TF2 production took over a portion of The Free Library on Ben Franklin Parkway in Philadelphia on June 14th. IESB.net posted a set report from John when he went by there to drop off a book.

He noticed that the 2nd floor of the Free Library was where the shoot centered and it involved an actress in a long blue gown, possibly a prom or wedding gown. Just as interesting is a chase sequence from Friday:
[A security guard] went on to tell us about a chase scene that was filmed the previous Friday right on East River Drive. He didn't know the names of the cars but by his description it was Ironhide, Bumblebee, and Prime in pursuit of some silver car. He said this silver car is nothing like what's out there now and didn't even know the make on it. He said it's really slick & looks way cool. But he said the chase scene is way cool especially for people who live in the city here. He said there's 3 wks left of filming in Philadelphia.
A gown? Could be a party dress to go with the frat party and just misinterpreted as I am assuming the dress description came from a guy but regardless what does it have to do with the story.

What of the East River filming? Could it be the Audi R8 that was spotted at the Bethlehem shoot and also filmed being chased? Another Transformer? With three weeks to go, what other places will Transformers 2 production pop up?

  1. It sounds like the silver car we were debating the other day. Corvette ZR1, C7 corvette, concept, prototype, whatever it is I think that guy saw it. Sounds like it's a decepticon as well.

  2. I've driven East River Drive (aka Kelly Drive) hundreds of times, and every time I always think it would be a great road for a movie chase sequence. Very twisty and narrow in parts for a four lane road. Cut into the base of a rocky hill. Lots of bridges and even a small tunnel. Excellent road for a chase sequence.

  8. Yeah we did see some girl in a blue gown walking into the building when we were there, not sure if it was the same one but it was strapless and long I believe (or had spaghetti straps haha too far away to tell) but either way it looked more like a prom type of dress than something casual from the distance I saw it at.

  11. According to an interview with Bay, the car is an R8 and based on the fact that it has been seen being chased by Prime, Bumblebee and Ironhide it's obvious it is a Decepticon. We'll see come 6/26/9.
