Penn State is slated to be one of the filming locations for the highly anticipated DreamWorks feature film, Transformers 2, starring Shia LaBeouf, Megan Fox, Josh Duhamel, and directed by Michael Bay.
According to The Daily Pennsylvanian, University spokeswoman Lori Doyle explained that filming would tentatively begin around June 12 with scenes using the exterior of the Quad.
According to Doyle, the extensive project is expected to involve about 200 people, 25 tractor-trailer trucks and cranes.
"They have their own landscaping people, they bring in their own catering, it's a huge operation," she said.
In addition, scenes will be shot at Psi Upsilon Tau fraternity house, better known as The Castle, and possibly on Locust Walk and Spruce Street, Doyle said.
