After a few weeks filming way out of the public eye at the Packard Plant and the Michigan Motion Picture Studios, Michael Bay and the rest of the Transformers 5 production team came out on the streets of Detroit yesterday with drones, helicopters and a flying Mark Wahlberg stunt double. I hope this guy earns a lot of money. The small crowd gathered to watch filming outside the Fisher Building last night gasped as the guy was first spun around in the air, and then flung against the building several times. That had to hurt.
Filming in the area continues today (Friday) and then moves a few miles to Fort Street and Shelby downtown on Saturday. The extent of the road closures over the weekend might suggest some major filming and perhaps Optimus Prime, Hound and the rest of the gang out on the streets with some chases, explosions and general Bayhem! Let’s hope.
