Shooting in Gary, Indiana April 13

By Administratus Prime

As “Transformers 3” is getting close to its start date, the film crew have contacted a city to be ready to welcome them for shooting. According to Post-Tribune, a member of the crew was expected to ask Gary’s Board of Public Works and Safety for permission on Wednesday, March 31 to film scenes in Gary, Indiana on April 13.

It was further informed that the principal photography will take place at property owned by Majestic Star Casino at Buffington Harbor. Ben Clement, who volunteers as the director of Gary’s office of Film and Television, claimed industrial property to the east of Majestic Star will be used for a scene which is supposed to be set in Russia. “It’s a very, very quick scene,” Clement dished on the said scene, adding that more footage could be shot in Gary in the future.

Clement said director Michael Bay himself visited Gary in December. “I’ve been working with these guys for a few months now,” he claimed. However, officials at Majestic Star have not made comment on the report and it has not been known whether the shooting in Gary, Indiana will occur during the evening hours or highly trafficked day-time hours.

Previously, Bay shared that this third “Transformers” film will feature action scenes set in Los Angeles, Chicago, Washington DC, Florida, Texas, Africa, Moscow and China. Some original actors such as Shia LaBeouf, Megan Fox and Josh Duhamel are on board to reprise their respective roles in “Transformers 3”, which is scheduled for July 1, 2011 U.S. release.
