Transformers to film in Chicago

I have admittedly become a Transformers fan after seeing the live action film in 2007! I was so inspired by the bad-ass robots, that I decided to transform my 2006 VW Beetle into the Bumblebee Bug! Fittingly the original Bumblebee from the Transformers cartoon series was a yellow VW Beetle too. My car is a marriage of both new and old Bumblebee concepts, with a few extra touches of my own.

Naturally, I was excited to hear that some of the new Transformers 3 movie will be filmed in Chicago. It has been officially confirmed from Transformers' director Michael Bay's website that, "There will be big action sequences shot in Chicago and Moscow this time around." I know that we won't see any actual robots, but it's still awesome, and maybe we'll get a glimpse of the awesome GM cars featured in the movie!

Also, I'd like to take this moment to inform everyone that my car, the Bumblebee Bug, IS on Facebook. Become a fan,, well you're probably a fan of a bunch of other lamer things on Facebook so just do it!

    Well, that's cool to know...if you can figure out how to visit the set while filming is taking place. :-D

    I'm sure they'll be keeping security super tight! But sometimes you can find out if movies are looking for extras through the Chicago Film Office.
