Hollywood Invades Detroit
One afternoon, while riding my bike, I stumble upon a construction site in downtown Detroit. The site is active with cranes swinging and workers pouring foundations, building wooden framework, connecting metal beams and erecting walls. I’m a bit confused about what’s going on, because there’s no sign and the construction looks really strange. I approach someone behind the fence on a smoke break and I’m told the construction is a movie set for Transformers 4. The completed set will resemble an apocalyptic city scene in Hong Kong, China. The movie debuts in theaters on June 27, 2014.
A few days ago, I went back and snapped these photos of the progress made on the movie set.
