Transformers 4 Eyes China Shoot

Because of China’s economic policy regarding foreign releases and the nation’s importance at the international box office, having a connection to the nation helps ensure that Transformers 4 gets a Chinese release. As to how much that will impact the story (which was, early on, rumored to take place primarily in outer space) remains to be seen.

Transformers 4 will begin production in spring of 2013 with Mark Wahlberg currently the only actor confirmed to star. The film will be produced by Don Murphy & Tom DeSanto, Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Ian Bryce, and executive produced by Steven Spielberg, Bay, Brian Goldner and Mark Vahradian.
