MILWAUKEE (WSAU) The next “Transformers” movie won’t have Megan Fox – but it will have scenes filmed in Milwaukee. The Film Wisconsin group says director Michael Bay will film scenes at the Milwaukee Art Museum and the Tower Automotive site on the week of July 12th. Producers say “Transformers-3” will be shot around the world, including Chicago for a few weeks. It’s expected to be released next summer.
Also, Milwaukee could also be chosen for next year’s “American Idol” auditions to take place this fall. Dave Fantle, the board president of Film Wisconsin, says he should get the final word on that next week.
