Transformers 4 secures filming incentive payment to shoot on location in Detroit

Action sequel Transformers 4 has secured a filming incentive payment to shoot on location in Detroit, Michigan. Filmmaker Michael Bay is returning to direct the movie, which will spend around USD80 million locally and get an incentive payment of USD20 million.

“It speaks volumes about all Michigan has to offer that Transformers is returning once again to our state,” said Michigan Film Office Director Margaret O’Riley: “This project will shine another bright spotlight on Michigan and provide tremendous opportunities for our cast, crew and support services.”

The movie will be the third in the Steven Spielberg-produced franchise to film on location in Detroit. Spielberg’s DreamWorks Studios is also overseeing Detroit location filming for videogame adaptation Need for Speed, which will be spending around USD5 million locally.
