Paramount Pictures ‘Transformers 3’ Auditions and Casting Information

*** Click Here for Transformers 3 Update ***

A pre-vis scene will shoot at the Majestic Star Casino in Gary, Indiana on April 12th, 2010. Filming will take place on industrial property owned by Majestic Star Casino at Buffington Harbor. The scene will be shot during daylight hours and will involve a crew of about 60 people. The set will be closed to the public. The movie crew will shoot a “rather simple scene” portraying vehicles approaching the industrial property. The scene is meant to take place in Ukraine. None of the principal stars of the movie, including John Malkovich, Frances McDormand, and Shia LaBeouf, is expected to be on the set. No extras will be used.

Note: A ‘pre-vis’ scene refers ‘previsualization’ filming. The advantage of previsualization is that it allows directors to experiment with different staging and art direction options – such as lighting, camera placement and movement, stage direction and editing – without having to incur the costs of actual full-blown production filming.


Transformers 3 is now in production and auditions for principal actors are taking place. Director Michael Bay has signed on to direct his third Transformers picture. Pre-shoots start April, 2010. The filming locations are set for Los Angeles, Chicago, Washington, D.C., Florida, Texas, Africa, Moscow and China. Principal photography will run from May 17, 2010 through July 1, 2010. Release Date: July 1st, 2011.

Shia LaBeouf and Megan Fox return as Sam Witwicky and Mikaela Banes in “Transformers 3”. A darker more introspective journey into the Transformers universe and their origins on Cybertron. Peter Cullen also returns as the voice of Optimus Prime. This 3rd installment in the series “won’t be as robot-heavy and there will be fewer explosions, as the film gets more into the robot character. The last time (Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen) you kind of met a few of the robots. In “Transformers 3″ you’re gonna get a much cooler landscape” according to director Michael Bay. There is also preview footage of the possibility of Unicron, the planet eater, in this sequel.
