An article that appears in today's Philadelphia Inquirer features quotes from ROTF Producer Ian Bryce on his experiences shooting Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen in Philadelphia as well as several other locations. The following is an excerpt.

By phone from London, where the megahit-to-be had a prerelease premiere this week, Bryce is catching his breath after working on the Autobots vs. Decepticons spectacle for nearly two years. The film, a follow-up to the $708 million-grossing Transformers (that's global box office), opens everywhere Wednesday.

"This one was quite an adventure, because when we started there was no script," Bryce acknowledges. "So, as Mike and the writers were busy writing, we essentially had a seven-page treatment that we knew was going to represent the script - and we had to start preparing the movie physically from that document.

"That included making a blueprint for where we thought we were going to shoot. We started scouting locations before we had a real solid idea of what was going to be in [the movie]. . . . Mike said, 'Look, it feels like we need this . . . kind of location.' He's great about that. He's very pragmatic about making those choices.

"And as you'll see when you watch the film, there were lots of locations, we shot on four continents, and so it was very challenging logistically and operationally."
