Filming has begun at the Bethlehem Steel for Transformers 2, and RLSlog has some blurry photos from outside the set. From what I can tell, they have some very cool lighting. The photo below shows two military choppers flying over the Lehigh River with a police light chopper in the center providing some light.
/Film reader Frankie S passes along word that WFMZ-tv has a couple news reports from the Bethlehem set. Click here to watch the early report, and click here to watch the report from the nightly news. The second report features a brief interview with producer Lorenzo di Bonaventure, who confirms that the Chinese Factory sequence is the opening scene for the film.
Meanwhile MTV reports that British actor Matthew Marsden (Resident Evil: Extinction) has been cast as a British Special Forces agent named Graham, who teams with Duhamel and Tyrese’s American military characters in the battle with the evil Decepticons.
Transformers 2 will hit theaters on June 26th, 2009.
