Transformers to take over D.C. streets
[This post will be updated]
Autobots and Decepticons -- and the people who fight them -- will take over the District next week as filming for "Transformers 3," starring Shia LaBeouf, moves into the streets Oct. 11-15.
Other celebrities who have signed on for the flick include Hugo Weaving as Megatron and Josh Duhamel returning for his third turn as Maj. William Lennox and Tyrese Gibson as Chief Master Sgt. Robert Epps. No word yet on who may be in town for the filming.
So, where can you watch? There are no specific areas designated yet, but Josh Friedman, spokesman for the District Office of Motion Picture and Television Development, said the production office may release a formal announcement.
However, Friedman said it "may be very difficult to a get a view of what's going on. Filming is going to be pretty isolated and contained within the production area," and you might have to stand at a distance.
He noted, though, that "certainly the Mall will be open. It's a public space."
We've asked for more information from the production office in Florida where "Transformers 3" is currently being filmed, and we will share new details as they become available. Meanwhile, a hotline has been set up at 202-540-8039 with production details, and should also have information about public viewing areas, if it becomes available.
