      Transformers 4 to begin shooting in Michigan in a week

      The makers of the next installment of the "Transformers" movie franchise plan to shoot this month near Adrian.

      Wheat fields along Michigan 52 in Lenawee County's Fairfield Township will host the shooting of an action scene for the movie "Transformers 4" later this month.

      In March, the Michigan Film Office said the state approved for a $20 million incentive for "Transformers 4" and said and shooting would take place in the Detroit area.

      Moviemakers will use a 2 mile stretch of M-52, about 65 miles southwest of Detroit.

      The Michigan Department of Transportation says it's approved the closing of the roadway from June 25 to 29 for the shooting.
