Transformers 4 has taken over Detroit the past couple of weeks, filming in many locations around the city. For this Saturday and Sunday only, production will be relocating to the Delta Township GM assembly plant.
According to a movie publicist this will be a closed set, so no visitors will be allowed. Currently there’s no word on whether stars Mark Wahlberg or Stanley Tucci will be on set.
Next week they will return to filming in Detroit, but according to a GM spokesperson, the Delta Township plant will not be the only one featured in the movie, so keep your eyes peeled for possible filming in your area!
My personal view is that marijuana prohibition has been a complete failure that has mainly succeeded in filling up our prisons with minor drug offenders at an extremely high cost to the taxpayers of this state. Our police officers and courts have more important things to do than pursue and prosecute these violations.
Who wants to know where we'll be opening new stores?
