REVENGE OF THE FALLEN Update... It has been 18 days since the start of filming for Transformers 2, and I thought I’d post up some pics that were taken over the course of the shoot. But first, here’s an article about Megan Fox talking about next year’s summer blockbuster that was posted on MTV.com yesterday:
Now, the Transformers star is back on the set with Michael Bay – and true to the director’s favorite word, she says he’s making an awesome sequel.
"As big as the first movie was, this is 10 times as big, 10 times as many set pieces, explosions, and acrobatic stunts," she told us about Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. "Shia and I make out a little bit; I don’t know if anyone wants to see that."
Something tells us that Shia LaBeouf wants to see it.
Regardless, Megan insisted that the blossoming romance between Sam and Mikaela is only one of the many plotlines Bay will be juggling for the June 2009 flick. But according to the actress, some last-minute scrambling has been taking place to make sure their romance can hold its own among all those Autobot vs. Decepticon showdowns.
"You know, we’ve been having script meetings, and we’ve been reworking the script, because they wrote it fast because of the writer’s strike," she explained. "And, we’ve just been going through and trying to do some character stuff for Shia and myself in the middle of this crazy world that they’re in."
"I can tell you that we’re on locations in some really exotic places," she added. "It’s just going to be a badass movie. It’s just going to be a popcorn-visual-spectacle, summer film."
As for Michael Bay’s main directorial input to his lead actress, Megan had this to say: "His main note to me is just to look hot; so I try my best."
The 8 photos below, though not in chronological order, shows filming that was done in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania; the Smithsonian Air & Space Museum in Washington, D.C.; and various locales across Philadelphia. Principal photography for Revenge of the Fallen will last for around 84 days...with filming also taking place in New Mexico, Arizona and New York. Even if a SAG strike occurs at the end of this month, Paramount/Dreamworks has placed a built-in hiatus in the production so filming won’t be affected should a labor walkout occur. Anyways, onto the pics:
