While this shouldn't come as a huge surprise, given the nature of director Michael Bay's Transformers franchise, the producers of Transformers 4 want to blow up several Chinese landmarks during their shoot in China this fall.

The producers have signed a deal with Chinese financiers Beijing Pangu, who will foot the bill for the Chinese portion of the shoot, scheduled to commence in October. In exchance, the company wants the sequel to use their main building, the Pangu Plaza Hotel in Beijing, which will be seen exploding in the movie. The facility is close to the National Stadium and Beijing National Aquatic Center, which the production also wants to use in the movie, although it isn't known if they will be blown up or not.
