Notice that we did not say Transformers: Age Of Extinction will be the “mother of all bombs,” but we’re counting on one or more of our readers to make that joke. According to a report in the Chicago Tribune, director Michael Bay plans to set off the “mother of all bombs” as part of the filming of Transformer: Age Of Extinction.
The fourth Transformers film (and last which Michael Bay plans to direct) is in process of wrapping up filming in Chicago this week. According to a source, the “mother of all bombs” explosion will take place on Wednesday afternoon in Chicago around the silos on S. Damen Avenue and W. 29th Street in the Pilsen area.
Even though the film is shooting in Chicago, it’s actually Hong Kong that Bay is likely blowing up in the movie. Many of the scenes that Bay has filmed so far in Chicago have been set in Hong Kong with Hong Kong flags and Chinese street signs.
