    Philly film projects

    Neat twist surrounding the action movie Transformers 2, whose production will be based in Philly for the better part of June. I hear that director Michael Bay and crew also will shoot in Bethlehem, Pa., which will double as a city in the Far East. (A twist in the notion of sending American jobs overseas.)

    Jonah Hill in early talks for 'Transformers 2'

    Jonah Hill is in early negotiations to costar opposite Shia LaBeouf in Transformers 2 for DreamWorks and Paramount. Hill (Superbad, Forgetting Sarah Marshall) will provide the comic relief as a sidekick to Shia's Sam Witwicky. (A source tells EW.com that he'll play Sam's college roommate, but DreamWorks won't confirm.) The sequel is set to begin shooting this summer.

    Drop Shia, bring in Jonah as the lead and then maybe...just maybe I'll consider seeing the movie.
    What an idiot....

    Dude, they should just have the whole Superbad cast be in the 2nd movie.

    Like, at the end of Superbad, they are at the mall with the chicks, McLovin' get's there with the cops and BAM ... Transformers begins.

    And then drop Michael Bay. He couldn't direct his way out of a paper bag.

    Hey, I went to work today thinking I was four weeks away from shooting and by 11:30 I found out I'm just three weeks away. ****! How time fly's.
    Isabel - no Steven did not pick her - it just makes a good sound bite for press. Yes, I did give her the part. - True story.

    Transformers 2 negotiations between Jonah Hill and DreamWorks have broken down, and the Superbad star is no longer expected play a sidekick to Shia LaBeouf in the upcoming sequel from director Michael Bay.
    Word is that he will appear in a cameo role in Ben Stiller's Night at the Museum 2 for director Shawn Levy.

    Bethlehem Transformers 2 Shoot Details

    Source: ComingSoon.net
    May 28, 2008



    A letter from the location manager of DreamWorks/Paramount Pictures' Transformers 2 has gone out to Bethlehem, Pennsylvania residents saying that the sequel will be shooting at the former Bethlehem Steel site at 511 E Third Street on June 2-4 from approximately 4pm to 7am on all three dates.

    The letter states that "The work will include aerial work with both camera and military helicopters, large scale pyrotechnics, prop guns and squibs, and large lights. We are working with the city to close 3rd Street from Hayes to Polk and Polk Street from 3rd to 1st 7pm - 6am all three days. This will help us maintain a safety perimeter for our work. Local traffic and emergency lanes will be kept open at all times."

    Stay tuned for possible updates from this shoot. The sequel is scheduled for a June 26, 2009 release.

    Rainn Wilson in for 'Transformers 2'

    Actor to play a small role in the sequel

    By Jay A. Fernandez and Borys Kit
    The Hollywood Reporter
    May 29, 2008, 01:00 AM

    Rainn Wilson (Getty Images photo)

    If you've ever wondered just how Dwight Schrute would handle himself in a brawl with a gigantic robot, well ... it looks like you're going to get an answer.

    Rainn Wilson, who plays the intense (and intensely funny) Schrute on NBC's "The Office," has revealed to MTV that he has been cast in DreamWorks' "Transformers 2." The sequel to last year's megahit about a race of automotive automatons smashing it out on Earth reteams director Michael Bay with returning stars Shia LaBeouf, Megan Fox, Josh Duhamel, Tyrese Gibson and John Turturro.

    The story was conceived by Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, who wrote last year's "Transformers," as well as Ehren Kruger, who wrote the screenplay. Filming began in Los Angeles in recent weeks and is moving to Pennsylvania and then overseas.

    Although a small part, Wilson's casting -- his first in a big-budget studio franchise -- could be a shrewd play for a comedy crowd that might not otherwise patronize a bombastic Bay extravaganza. He will play a college professor to LaBeouf's new undergrad. Discussions with Jonah Hill to take another small role did not pan out.

    'Transformers 2' Filming

    The beginning of a blockbuster?

    Movie crew creating an opening scene arrives in Bethlehem.



    The crews begin to arrive for the filming of a part of 'Transformers 2' movie at the former Bethlehem Steel site in Bethlehem on Wednesday. (MICHAEL KUBEL, Allentown Morning Call / May 28, 2008)

    Of The Morning Call
    May 29, 2008

    Explosions, blazing lights and even military helicopters will all be part of making a Hollywood movie about giant, shape-shifting robots -- but, as the Bethlehem neighbors of the ''Transformers 2'' movie set will find out next week, it might not involve much sleep.

    The movie's crew will be turning the former Bethlehem Steel site into a nighttime war zone from 4 p.m. Monday until 7 a.m. Tuesday, Mayor John Callahan said Wednesday. The filming will continue the following two nights during the same hours.

    Notices were sent to neighbors and nearby business owners Tuesday warning them about the upcoming noise, glare and road closures that will come along with the filming of one of the movie's opening scenes, which will feature the computer-generated robots alongside Steel's instantly-recognizable blast furnaces.

    ''It is essentially going to be a simulated war,'' Callahan said.

    ''Overall, it's a great thing for the city,'' he said, citing the economic impact from the roughly 200 crew members staying in hotels and buying supplies.

    At the same time, city officials know the filming might be an inconvenience for anyone trying to sleep through director Michael Bay's pyrotechnic displays. Callahan said officials want to make sure residents know what's going on so they won't call police with worries or complaints about the noise.
