    • Thanks- I received the same tip via Twitter but can’t seem to find the church on a map, can’t find the ‘This Must Be The Place’ location on a map either, does anyone have any suggestions?

      • The locales for ‘This Must be the Place’ was in Bad Axe, MI…the county seat for Huron County. They are finished filming there and are gone.

        The church mentioned for ‘Real Steel’ and the other Ubly locales are out in the middle of rural Huron County. Most of these locations are easy to find for locals, but do not show up on most GPS. They are also located in “towns” that no longer exist, just local names for the areas.

        This is my hometown area.

  1. Has anyone in Detroit heard from transformers if they’d applied to be an extra? Just wondering if nobody heard back or just I haven’t heard back 🙂

  2. I stumbled on “E-7” basecamp located on Third St. and Baltimore St. in the same area were T-3 is being filmed. I saw actors dressed in what appeared to be Russsian or German Military dress garb. also I witnessed a parade scene off of Grand blvd. along the old General Motors HQ. Confetti was being dropped from a crane and included a motorcade of police motorcycles and crowd stand of extras. I could not find out if this was associated with E-7. T-3 was setting up at the Fischer Building as reported earlier, Hostel 3 is @ the Masonic Temple off of Cass Ave. Found the new Sream 4 basecamp on the corner of 7 mile and Center St. across from Northville Downs race track and now have moved filming to a couple of houses across the street from the original house they were filming at. One house had the front porch covered in black tarps on the porch. Hope that helps.

    • Hey Scott, thanks so much for all the info, I’ll change the info for Hostel 3 (not Vamps at Masonic)! E7 is Transformers 3 and here’s the latest on the Fisher Building filming:

      filming at the Fisher Building scene will last approximately 7 hours between 1:00PM-8:00PM. Between the hours of 4:30PM-6:00PM, the production will move outside.

  3. Sorry which Vancouver Fairmont is that? There is one out by the airport and one in downtown I think….
    Or maybe the one by the airport would qualify as Richmond instead and I answered my own question?

    Any idea of which celebs are in town this week?
    [Aside from Wil Wheaton filming “Eureka?” I heard from his twitter. He’s great with updates if anyone’s interested!]

    • thanks for the update on Scream, I think they probably wrapping any time now.

      And, just to make the Hostel/Vamps at Masonic debate more confusing, got a tip today that Hostel was filming at the Michigan Central Depot.

  4. I think they might have wrapped up, this is the last note from the casting co:
    “Abduction Extras FB Family we need your help! Seeking males 6’0-6’3 200lbs, available all day Today 9/17! Please send a pic of your hand and face, measurements and d.O.B. to ASAP. Thanks!”

  5. I know its kinda late but they were filming “Footloose” in Dallas,Georgia (about 30 minutes out of Atlanta) at the high school.
    We were leaving wrestling practice & saw a few of the stars. But Zac Efron & the guy that’s in it now were both there. They also filmed all in town in Dallas & Hiram.
