Regarding Penn's open letter to Michael Bay
Penn students on Facebook have set up an open letter to Michael Bay. According to the post they seem to think that although Michael has shot at Penn the movie will take place at Princeton. It reads:
Princeton? Really? You HAD to shoot at the University of Pennsylvania and choose to have us 'play' Princeton? Shia couldn't have gone to UPENN? Join this group and ask Michael Bay to CGI the University of Pennsylvania (not Princeton) back into Transformers 2.
Michael has indicated to me that neither school gave him permission to use their names. There was a very funny “mom” scene were both felt it did not represent the school.
