Transformers Returning to Holloman

The AirForceTimes reports that Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen will return to Holloman Air Force Base in southern New Mexico:

Last week, hundreds of airmen showed up for a movie casting call at the base.

Parts of “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen” are set to be filmed in Alamogordo, N.M., home to Holloman. Scenes from the first “Transformers” were shot at Holloman in 2006 and featured aircraft such as the CV-22 Osprey and MH-53 Pave Low.

“About 200 people will be hired as extras to portray military members,” Maryellen Aviano, extras casting coordinator for DreamWorks Pictures, said in an Air Force news release.

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen opens in conventional theaters and IMAX on June 26, 2009.
