The Michigan Film Office announced the feature film "Transformers 4" has been approved for a $20 million incentive from the state on nearly $82 million of projected in-state expenditures. The project is expected to hire 368 Michigan workers with a full time equivalent of 339 jobs.
"Transformers 4" which is expected to film this spring in metro Detroit, opens soon after the end of "Transformers: Dark of the Moon," where a great battle left a city torn - but with the world once again saved.
It is the third film in the series to use Detroit as a backdrop. The first "Transformers," released in 2007, and "Transformers: Dark of the Moon," released in 2011, also filmed in metro Detroit.
The Film Office says so far this fiscal year, 13 projects have been awarded a total of $30,962,806 on $120,172,305 of approved production expenditures for the year. These projects are expected to create 1,190 Michigan hires with a full time equivalent of 559 jobs.
