Transformers 2: Big Robots To Do Battle At Chinese Factory?

Transformers 2 begins production next month in Pennsylvania, and one of the scenes is set to shoot in front of the iconic furnaces in south Bethlehem (shown above). The production will transform the old steel site into an Asian city during the first week of June. They are currently casting local 'Asian men and women, boys and girls, ages 7 [to] 65” as paid extras in the movie, and are looking for people who have military backgrounds. Looks like big computer generated robots will battle the Chinese military in front of the blast furnaces. The Mayor has been assured that it will be 'an important scene for this movie.'

Thanks to /Film reader Kinsey for passing this along.
