“Transformers 2” director Michael Bay claims that, short of news that filming is taking place in Philadelphia, everything else that has hit the Net about the upcoming “Transformers” sequel is BS.
He says on his official site that “Sorry everyone, everything you are reading (other then we are shooting in Philly) is false. We are going to give so much disinformation on this film to confuse everyone.”
Secrecy on a project is understandably important, and the respectable way to do it is simply keep quiet – denial or even no response is often the most effective way. Outright misinformation propaganda however is another thing.
As a movie website editor, that kind of deceitful approach sadly leaves me only one choice – practically no coverage whatsoever of the film short of the confirmed publicity materials.
