Meanwhile, this site says that "Apparently Shia [LaBeouf] is going to be filming Transformers 2 in Penn's Castle Fraternity for a scene. Apparently shooting starts in June." We'll have to wait and see if that turns out to be accurate.
Michael Bay's Transformers 2 is scheduled for a June 26, 2009 release.
