A Step Behind

June 9, 2008 at 10:29 am 2 comments

As a blog that brought you a behind-the-scenes look at the set of National Treasure at Mount Vernon, it would have only been suiting that we do the same for the next Transformers.  But, alas, it was not to be.  On Friday I took my kids to the National Air and Space Museum (Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center).  Our $12 parking fee was waived because we were told DreamWorks LLC had everyone covered that day.  Half of the museum was blocked off for filming and since my son was getting “shh’ed” by DreamWorks staff during filming, we took off to the non-Hollywood half so as to not disrupt.

Figuring that it was a non-cartoon film for DreamWorks, I didn’t think it was a big film. I also didn’t recognize the three actors we saw from 50 yards away.  Come to find out the next day in the paper that it was Shia LeBoeuf and Megan Fox and that Shia was merrily signing autographs inbetween takes.

So close yet so far away.

    Here I go playing gossip columnist again…but in today’s Philly Daily News it was reported Shia and Megan were shooting scenes from “Transformers 2” in Philly on Monday, in what is known around these parts as the Italian Market area. The scoop is I can confirm the report was both Director Michael Bay and Shia were friendly to the fans – no word on Megan’s interaction. John Turturro was also on hand for the filming. Philadelphia is becoming quite the film “capital” these days…Demi Moore and Parker Posey were in town recently shooting a film…as were Jennifer Aniston and Owen Wilson. All reports at those times were they played nice with the adoring public as well.
