  • That’s awesome. And sweet for local crews who can pick up some gigs. Maybe Michael Bay will flip some cars for us.

  • Looks super cool.. im gonna go try get a job as an extra..!

  • I’m one of the locals working on Transformers. I get a check, the city gets a check. It’s good news for DC’s budget deficit.

    A movie like this probably has a daily below-the-line budget of around $500,000. Every day, a chunk of that money is spent on everything from hotels to lumber to local hires. Transformers 3 will be here for around 10 days total, including the shooting days.

    Bay’s initial request was for 6 weeks of shooting. Too bad DC doesn’t have true sovereignty, and some short-sighted official in the park service can effectively quash a bigger deal that would have put untold millions into DC’s coffers. With a couple road closures, DC can bring in a couple million a week in location fees and other revenue.

  • That is all we need – MORE cars set on fire.. AND they make it look cool.
