Transformers 3 to shoot in Kingdom: minister

The third installment of the wildly successful Transformers film franchise is set to shoot in Cambodia next month, Minister of Information Khieu Kanharith announced yesterday in a Facebook posting. Khieu Kanharith said he had given the “green light” for filming to begin here in the second week of February. He declined via email to answer follow-up questions, referring a reporter to forthcoming report by the government’s Agence Kampuchea Presse news agency that had yet to be published at press time yesterday. According to the entry on the Internet Movie Database website for the third Transformers film – subtitled “Dark of the Moon” – it is set to be released in July of this year. Shooting locations listed on the site include Chicago and Los Angeles, though not Cambodia.
