Transformers Returning to Michigan, Approved for Film Incentive

Michigan Film Office:
The Michigan Film Office announced today the feature film Transformers 4 has been approved for a film incentive from the state. Transformers 4, expected to film this spring in metro Detroit, opens soon after the end of Transformers: Dark of the Moon, where a great battle left a city torn – but with the world once again saved.

“It speaks volumes about all Michigan has to offer that Transformers is returning once again to our state,” said Margaret O’Riley, director of the Michigan Film Office. “This project will shine another bright spotlight on Michigan and provide tremendous opportunities for our cast, crew and support services.

Transformers 4 was awarded an incentive of $20 million on $81,933,992 of projected in-state expenditures. The project is expected to hire 368 Michigan workers with a full time equivalent of 339 jobs.

I'm not sure where they plan on taking the story but I'm going to have to wait until I know more before I make judgement on this.

Micheal Bay already fucked the series. So I don't care where it goes anymore...

I think Detroit could revolutionize itself as a place for big-budget movies if it put in the effort. I just think of all the big movies that require huge sound stages and go to England (ex. Pinewood Studios). Detroit could be a closer alternative or at least replace Canada as a go-to place for cheaper costs.

Transformers franchise is not that bad at all, it just plays around mediority if only revenge of the fallen did not suck so bad we wouldnt look at the franchise as a complete failure. i mean part 1 was good and the third film was entertaining. but i dont know how they will continue this franchise when a lot of key characters is gone already. i like that they will still shoot it at detroit the previous films got good detroit location shoots.
