The Daily Pennsylvanian has reported a few new bits of information regarding the filming sequence that will take place for Transformers the Movie 2. Taken from the report:

University spokeswoman Lori Doyle explained that filming would tentatively begin around June 12 with scenes using the exterior of the Quad.



According to Doyle, the extensive project is expected to involve about 200 people, 25 tractor-trailer trucks and cranes.

"They have their own landscaping people, they bring in their own catering, it's a huge operation," she said.

In addition, scenes will be shot at Psi Upsilon Tau fraternity house, better known as "The Castle," and possibly on Locust Walk and Spruce Street, Doyle said.

Director Michael Bay was Undergraduate Senior Vice-President of Wesleyan University's Psi Upsilon chapter during his time in college.


Due to plot confidentiality, the University was not allowed to divulge any further information regarding the actual filming sequences, but it will be interesting to see how use of a Fraternity house will be portrayed in the film and whether or not 'Sam' will be in a fraternity.

with the way that sounds, im started to fear about TF2. I hope its not gonna be the cliche collegelolz thing. I can almost predict that instead of hating the human and s7 scenes in the 1st TF movie, im gonna be hating the college frat and human scenes. ; \ *sighs sadly*
