‘Transformers 3’ begins filming in Washington D.C. with a bang

Today was the first day of filming in Washington D.C. for Transformers 3 after wrapping up at the Kennedy Space Center last week.

The movie, which will be filming in and around D.C. through October 15, shot scenes at 17th and D St today, but had to briefly stop production after Bumblebee ran into a Washington D.C. police car.

According to TDB, “It appears a car-slash-character known in the film as Bumblebee struck a D.C. police SUV as they were shooting a scene. The crash does not appear to have been part of Ehren Krueger’s script.”

You can check out a video of the crash above. We also have a couple photos below that were taken by our readers on set this afternoon.

  2. Does anyone know where they will be filming at tomorrow or any other time this week? I would love to get a picture for my son.
