It’s almost a wrap!
“Transformers 3” is spending its last day filming in downtown Chicago on Thursday.
Shooting will start in Millennium Park from 6 to 11 a.m., where the crew will be using pyrotechnics to create explosions.
From 7 to 9 p.m., a helicopter will be flying above the main branch of the Chicago River filming explosions on the rooftops of various high-rises along Wacker Drive. That should be a sight to see.
Filming will wrap up from 7 p.m. to midnight at Midway Plaisance in Hyde Park. Some streets will be intermittently closed between Woodlawn and Dorchester, and there will be … you guessed it … more pyrotechnics.
Ten of the jobs were paid internships for Chicago Public Schools students.
The third installment of the Transformers series is expected to be released in 2011.
Bet a lot of people from Chicago will go see it!
