Discovery Looks to be Appearing in Transformers 3

In an article at NASASpaceFlight.com talking about the preparations for the launch of Space Shuttle Discovery at the Kennedy Space Center, it mentions that it looks like Discovery will be appearing in Transformers 3:

Regardless, flashes and bangs of a different nature can be expected at the pad over the coming days, as movie crews film scenes for the Hollywood blockbuster Transformers 3, with Saturday processing information noting work to support filming should proceed as planned over this weekend.

Scenes are expected to be shot at Pad 39A on Wednesday – understood to be timed with Discovery being on show with the RSS retracted, meaning the Shuttle may gain herself some credits in the movie.

Hundreds of extras have received security clearance to be in the grounds of KSC during the filming, while Cape Canaveral sources noted Atlas and Delta resources will also be involved in some scenes. Director Michael Bay had previously filmed at KSC during the making of Armageddon – which involved scenes with Atlantis and Endeavour.

A July 1, 2011 release date is planned for Transformers 3.
