"Transformers 3" has apparently kicked off principal photography. Two workers at NeighboorGoods, Ben Brown and mickipedia, who witnessed the shooting in Sherman Oaks, California on Monday, May 10 have posted videos they recorded from their office.
The two clips actually show the filming of the same scene in which a silver car is thrown down an alley before it bumps onto the garbages. Brown also wrote on his blog that he saw "Autobot 'twins' zooming around" the location and "apparently, one or both of them will transform and beat the crap out of this tiny little car."
None of the main cast such as Megan Fox and Shia LaBeouf were seen during the shooting, but actress Kym Whitley claimed she joined the production that day. "Working on Transformers 3 today, a little nervous...always when starting a new project. I have said the Lords prayer 12 times," she tweeted. Her character is still not known but it is possible that she lands a small role.
Directed by Michael Bay, "Transformers 3" will feature action scenes shot in Chicago and Moscow. Patrick Dempsey has recently been added to the cast line-up to portray a role "significant to the plot." This follow-up to "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" is due for July 1, 2011 U.S. release.
