Detroit Goes Boom for Transformers 4

Posted on 25 July 2013 by Anisa

Downtown Detroit is hitting it up big this summer with the blockbuster production of Transformers 4 (currently 'untitled' on IMDB due to lack of official name) coming to its streets between the dates of July 31st through August 8 according to Paramount Pictures. 
The places to watch for are Washington Boulevard and Bagley Avenue where the China Town-esque filming set is currently being built,  including the sidewalks and streets in and around that area. With the bulk of the movie shooting reportedly taking place around the daylight hours of 7am-9am, some of the shooting is expected to run after those hours, so we suggest you look for cameras and crews working any time of the day. 
What can you expect to see? Residents and tourists alike were warned to 'expect simulated gunfire, controlled pyrotechnic explosions, precision driving potentially involving squealing tires, controlled vehicle crashes and smoke'. 
This is a potential community booster for downtown Detroit since the project is expected to hire 368 Michigan workers full time, not to mention the potential tourist attraction for the businesses in the area. 
This is the third movie in the franchise to use Detroit as a backdrop and it will be directed by rock-star daddy of directors Michael Bay with a bombshell cast  of Mark Wahlberg, Kelsey Grammer, Nicola Peltz and two of the best actors that have come out of mainland China: Bingbing Li and Geng Han. We expect to see the movie hit the silver screen 27th of June, 2014. Follow us for more information like trailers and other related movie news hot and fresh as they come out.

Red Dawn 2 (remake) filming locations and updates

Posted on 30 September 2009 by David

Just so everyone knows.  Im trying to put the shooting locations and events in chronological order. You can see there are gaps.  As I update, im trying to fill in those gaps but keep the chronological order.  So as you look through the listing, just kind of scan through.  I highlight the updates and put a date by when i did the update.

If anyone lives in an area, that they know will be used for filming, or have seen signs (permits)  or sees sets being built let us know and we will get that information listed.   The Crew is trying to keep details secret and people away.  I think this is a very special event, and we all deserve to be a part of it.

Several cities will be used for the filming of the remake of “Red Dawn.” .

Pontiac, Downtown Detroit, Royal Oak, Mount Clemens and a recreation center in Highland Park will be used as locations in the film.

The production is also expected to film some scenes in either the northern part of the lower peninsula or the upper peninsula.

*All previously used locations, where shooting has already occured has been deleted.  Just to make the updated information easier to follow.

Two weeks at the end of September they will be working on transforming the area in Downtown Pontiac, MI along Saginaw Street, just North of Huron into a movie set depicting Spokane, Wa

– Update Plans are to close that stretch of roadway, and possibly adjacent blocks beginning Sept. 17 between Lafayette and University Street, which won’t reopen it until the first week of October. Actual filming is tentatively planned for Sept. 27 to Oct. 4 from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m.   Another  location will be on Saginaw Street, south of Huron and between Lawrence and Pike streets. The main location will be Main Street Pawn Shop, at 20 N. Saginaw, an alley behind it and a building next to it at 28 North Saginaw.

It is expected that the closing of Saginaw Street will only be needed during the filming dates “for safety concerns” from Sept. 28 to Oct. 1,

Update September 24

Looks like the date might have been moved up from the 27 to the 24th to start filming in the downtown Area!!!

Update on September 29

We heard that a “Cabin Set” is built at Dodge Park in the Highland Lake Recreation Area north of Milford. for a wooded cabin scene.  It included two identical buildings, one normal and the other partially destroyed. Sort of a before and after. (Thanks Conarymor)

Update for September 30 Just received an email said that Red Dawn was going to be back in Royal Oak on Friday and Saturday. Notices were posted to residents last night. Detroit and Rochester Roads. (Thanks Kristen)

UPDATE for OCT 1….per the local location scout…a Red Dawn scene will be shot today and tomorrow at the Subway on Grand Circus Park in downtown Detroit…Adams west of Woodward to be closed.

If anyone has information about filming dates or has pics send them in!!

One of the sets for the red dawn remake– a stage for a propaganda rally, will be at Michigan and Griswold in Detroit.   This is scheduled the week of Oct 11, a week before the Detroit Free Press Marathon, that a week after will run through the set location.

Update for October 12: Based upon news stories and information recieved filming is occuring this week in Brighton.  If anyone has more specific and detailed information, let us know!!

Filming is also occuring this week at Griswold and Michigan in Detroit, Tue-Friday.  If anyone in the area knows the times.  just leave a post!! or email

Update for October 19: For the week of October 19 Red Dawn is shooting at michigan and griswold. location – police convention plaza tomorrow, and probably for the next couple of days.
If they are still filming at Mt. Brighton in Brighton, MI let us know. (thanks Linda!!)

Pontiac to be taken over by Chinese Army in ‘Red Dawn’ remake

Posted on 25 August 2009 by David


Pontiac will be doing its best Spokane, Wash., impression next month.

That’s when crews will be in Pontiac to shoot scenes for the upcoming remake of the classic 1980s film “Red Dawn.” The city is about 20 miles north-northwest of Detroit.

Downtown Development Authority director Sandy McDonald tells The Oakland Press filmmakers will be in Pontiac for two weeks at the end of September and a few days in October.

The city will be taken over by the Chinese Army, according to the Press’ Randal Yakey.

“Caged and enraged, resident of the city will rise up and take back their town in an attempt to fight back a repressive regime,” he writes
The original “Red Dawn” portrayed a Soviet invasion of a small town in the U.S.

Red Dawn – Wolverine Productions Delaware, LLC

And No Wolverine Productions Delaware doesnt have a website.  In this day and age does anyone else find that weird.  I tried to call them at 248-649-5620.   Yeah, its weird that in this day and age they dont have a website. Maybe one of you can convince them why its important to have a website

Red Dawn Casting and Film Crews Needed
