While some of the other high profile sequels in town are dealing with script issues and behind the scenes turmoil, it looks like Transformers 3 is set to begin filming this May. This fits in nicely with the already announced July 1, 2011 release date.
While we can all agree Michael Bay’s Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen was a big letdown after the awesome first film, with plenty of pre-production time for the third film (which was missing on the 2nd due to the writers strike), I’m extremely optimistic the next chapter is going to be good. Also, there is no way the studio is going to stand by this time and let Bay have complete control after watching the 2nd film. No way. Even if TF2 made $834 million at the worldwide box office.
With production set to begin in a few months, expect plenty of updates.
