A lot of little updates in the past week related to the upcoming “Transformers: Rise of the Fallen” and here they are collected into an easily digestible form. A big thanks to TF Live for their help with this:
-Scenes shot around Philadelphia City Hall will stand in for Ecole Militarie in Paris, France.
-In Paris there’s a scene where Sam’s parents (Julie White and Kevin Dunn) are being chased by a silver Saturn Astra and later deal with a Transformer.
– Megan Fox confirms that “Shia and I make out a little bit; I don’t know if anyone wants to see that” and that this film is “10 times as big”.
– Fox also confirmed that re-writes have been happening lately to beef up Shia’s character scenes.
– Photos of Shia and Megan shooting at Princeton University are up at Just Jared.
– Paramount has confirmed that there is no ‘2’ in the title.
– Details and pics of the new Camaro concept car, the 2010 Chevy Camaro Z28, which will be Bumblebee’s new vehicle form.

– Frenzy (the spindly steel robot onboard Air Force One in the first film) has been spotted chasing after a Saturn Astra, with Sam and co. inside. The action constituted much of the Princetoon shoot’s first two days.
