FILMING NOTIFICATION
***PLEASE NOTE THE TRAFFIC RESTRICTIONS***

August 19, 2013

Dear Building Owners, Merchants and Residents,

Paramount Pictures will be filming scenes for the upcoming motion picture “Transformers 4” in your neighborhood. We are excited to return to Chicago to capture the same unique Chicago look and remarkable architecture we found so cinematic in 2010. At Alderman Reilly’s request we are reaching out to the local community to communicate our filming activity.

Our production has a number of days for low-level helicopter work in the area. To ensure safety, low-level aerial filming requires temporary street closures to pedestrians and vehicles under the helicopter’s path of travel.

We are currently proposing the following aerial work:

Sunday, August 25th (07:00am – 09:00am) – CHICAGO RIVER / Columbus Dr to Franklin St

- The helicopter will be traveling east and west down the Chicago River from Columbus Dr to Franklin Street, and south on Franklin to Lake Street.

- Bridges at Wabash, State and Dearborn will be raised simultaneously and remain up for a majority of the filming time frame.

- Pedestrians and vehicles will be detoured around the raised bridges.

- Vehicle and pedestrian traffic on lowered bridges can expect 10-15 minute delays during filming. Vehicles and pedestrians will be held outside of the fly-zone ONLY during filming.

- The Chicago Riverwalk and adjacent plazas within the fly-zone will have intermittent pedestrian control.

- Boat traffic can expect 10-15 minute delays during filming between Columbus and Franklin Street bridges.


We are working closely with Alderman Reilly’s office, the Chicago Police Department, the Chicago Film Office and the Federal Aviation Administration to ensure a safe and cooperative filming event. Our goal is to make this a positive experience for everyone involved and we want to address your individual needs and concerns. Please call with any questions you may have. All business will open for normal hours and we will direct you to the closest detour if you choose not to wait. As always, we understand that we are guests in your neighborhood, and will conduct ourselves accordingly. Thank you for hosting us and we appreciate your cooperation and understanding.

We reported on this back in 2014, but it appears with the roll out of Transformers 5 on the way. Paramount is just now in court fighting a $27 Million lawsuit. The suit claims that the Chinese company Wulong Karst Tourism, paid $750,000 to be placed in the film, but they never appeared in the movie that was shown in Cinemas. Could this be a setback for the Transformers 5 movie's product and licensing opportunities?
The Czech news site expats.cz reports that Michael Bay may be considering shooting locations within the Czech Republic for the upcoming Transformers 5. This comes shortly after prime minister Bohuslav Sobotka made a journey to Los Angeles to court Hollywood producers for filming in his home country. Producers for TF5 were allegedly seen scouting locations in the country, so I guess it worked! Keep reading for more details.
Entertainment website The Wrap is reporting tonight that comedian Jerrod Carmichael may be in talks to be part of the cast for Transformers 5, due to begin filming this summer. The Wrap previously reported the rumor of Nickelodeon star Isabela Moner also being in negotiations to star in the movie along with returning lead Mark Wahlberg. There's precious little in the way of details, and reportedly Paramount has declined to comment at this time, but with production getting ever closer, more and more of these rumors are likely to prove accurate. Keep reading for a link back to the original article.
