A production notice from Michigan in the US granting Transformers 4 permission to shoot in Detroit with a hefty tax incentive this spring has revealed some of the first solid plot details for the film.
Per the Michigan Film Office (via CS), Transformers 4 is expected to film in the metro Detroit area this spring.
The synopsis for the film, according to the press release, reads: “As humanity picks up the pieces, following the conclusion of Transformers: Dark of the Moon, Autobots and Decepticons have all but vanished from the face of the planet.
“However, a group of powerful, ingenious businessman and scientists attempt to learn from past Transformer incursions and push the boundaries of technology beyond what they can control – all while an ancient, powerful Transformer menace sets Earth in his crosshairs. The epic adventure and battle between good and evil, freedom and enslavement ensues.”
Michael Bay will direct Transformers 4 with Mark Whalberg in the lead role.
