Michael Bay has been preparing to film portions of Transformers 2 in Philladelphia, PA for some time now, but we now have confirmation from philly.com that not only will Bay be filming in Philly over June of 2008, the crew will also be shooting in Bethlehem, Pa. as well.

Bethlehem will apparently also double as a Far East city - though the source didn't specify which one.

Transformers 2, directed by Michael Bay, stars Shia LaBeouf, and is scheduled for a June 26, 2009 release.
