‘Transformers 3’ set for filming on Chicago’s Magnificent Mile in July

Michael Bay may not have been able to shoot in front of the White House but he will get to shoot on The Magnificent Mile. Reportedly, Michigan Avenue in Chicago will be closed to both foot and vehicular traffic from July 15th at 8 PM to July 19th at 5 AM for the filming of Transformers 3. There are expected to be several explosions and car chase/ crash scenes shot during the period.

The bad news for fans is that the public is expected to be kept at a distance and will not be able to enter the area directly surrounding Michigan Avenue.

Currently, Transformers 3 is filming in Los Angeles and is expected to begin filming in Chicago on July 4. If you have any scoop about Transformers 3 filming locations, you can let us know at olv@onlocationvacations.com.


    • Sorry, but if you are looking to be an extra in Chicago they already had an extras casting call back at the beginning of June. It went for two days and over 1,000 people showed up. The notice was posted on Craigslist, as most of these things seem to be.
