Rumors have abounded recently and now it’s official. Director Michael Bay and producers Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Ian Bryce are bringing a cast and crew — about 150 all told — to film a scene from the new “Transformers 3” at the Milwaukee Art Museum on July 12.
“We’re really excited to showcase the Art Museum in what will be one of the most anticipated blockbuster films for next summer,” said Milwaukee Art Museum Director Dan Keegan.
“Logistical planning for the film began last November, and the cooperation between the city, the county and the private sector has been tremendous.”
“All factors considered, including salaries, hotels, food, fuel and miscellaneous equipment, supplies and rentals could pump more than $1 million into the local economy during its very limited shooting window. That does not include the incalculable positive image visibility for the city when the film is released in July 2011,” said Paul .
