The Detroit portion of the Transformers 4 shoot is scheduled to begin next week, and the production crews continue to build Chinese-themed sets in the Motor City. We have a new photo from the set, located next to the Grand Circus Park in downtown Detroit, that shows the Chinese buildings against the city's skyscrapers. Take a look at the photo, then read what producer Ian Bryce had to say about shooting in Detroit.

By request of the studio, these images have been removed.

Ian Bryce, who was in Detroit for Transformers and Transformers: Dark of the Moon, revealed why the city is perfect for the production.

"Next week, we begin in Detroit on the big set we've built underneath the monorail. There's a lot of control for cars and street action that we can't get in other places. We're big fans of Michigan and Detroit. There are a lot of good things we look forward to here, including the cooperation."

Detroit will essentially be made over to replicate Hong Kong, with the shoot expected to run through the second week of August. We reported in April that the sequel will be a Chinese co-production, with shooting to take place in China later this fall.
