So the rumors have been around for almost a month. First, Sharon Pinkenson let it slip. At the same time, Director Micheal Bay (aka Mr. "Awesome") was seen scouting locations at Penn and Girard College. Then other scouts for the film were checking out the Masonic Temple.
And according to Mike Klein, it’s no longer an if, but rather a certainty:
“Scouts for the Transformers 2 movie - which will be shot here this spring-summer…”And:
“Big, big-budget movie time will begin in June, when the sequel to Transformers will start shooting.”No “will reportedly be shot here” or “will reportedly start shooting here.”
So we take that to mean he got the confirmation from the Philadelphia Film Office.
So there you have it.
Shia and Megan will reportedly both be back.
So will Optimus. Doubly awesome.
Oh, right. Said that already.
And that awesome little whiny bitch Starscream too.
Hopefully, John Turturro, Bernie Mac and Mr. and Mrs. Witwicky make it back too.
Probably time for a nice, collective OMG. O. M. G.
Oh yeah, and this guy.
Seriously, we smell Oscar.
