There must be a lot of money left over from Megan Fox's paycheck!
Michael Bay has just begun production on the third Transformers film and he has hit a bit of a snag. He wants to shoot a pivotal scene from the flick in Washington D.C., along "Pennsylvania and Independence avenues."
Thing is, this scene requires some "simulated explosions and pyrotechnics" and the National Park Service is a little iffy with all that going on so close to Obama's house.
The city could really use the revenue, as production could last up to a month, meaning a month in city hotels, ordering food from local business, temporary jobs for locals, etc.
But the National Park Service wants restrictions placed on where the producers are allowed to shoot and if that is the case, it's likely that only "principal photography" will take place in the capital, and that'll take about a week.
And as we all know, Michael Bay of Pigs is a prick, so if he doesn't get what he wants, he will screw the city over.
Aw, c'mon! Let him blow up the White House! Just a little! It's for Transformers!!!
(We kid. We kid. Isn't most of this shiz done on computer anyway? Why is he shooting on location???)
