Transformers 3: Big Action Scenes to Take Place in Chicago and Moscow

So it seems like some of the movie, or at least some significant scenes, will be set in Russia, if this blog post from Michael Bay’s website is anything to go by:

Nelson here…

Spoke with Michael today and got some little info on TF3: there will be big action sequences shot in Chicago and Moscow this time around.

Also, Mike will match the amount raised by the TF2 DVD/Blu-ray sales for the Make A Wish Foundation.

In contrast to the last Transformers film which had its main action sequence set in a desert void of food, water and a decent storyline, this one should have at least one set amidst the freezing temperatures of Moscow. While there are no specifics about the plot, this gives us a fairly basic idea about where the film will take place (and lets be honest, none of us are going to be seeing Transformers 3 for it’s plot). So expect plenty of exploding Kremlin goodness for the next installment of the Transformers franchise.
