What's Being Filmed In Montreal? Could Be The New 'Transformers' Movie

There is nothing more exciting than watching a film and suddenly realizing the backdrop is the city you live in. If you feel me on this one, you will be excited to know that a new film coming out in 2022, Transformers: Rise Of The Beasts, is being filmed in Montreal and it seems as though shooting could be currently underway.

While we cannot confirm that the following photos are definitely part of the new Transformers set, all signs lead to it being very possible that it is.

Downtown Montreal is currently being transformed to New York City in the '90s, which is where the plot of the new Transformers film is expected to be set.

This video shows Montreal street names being changed to New York ones. MTL Blog reporter Alex Melki was able to have an individual confirm that it was allegedly part of the filming for Transformers: Rise Of The Beasts.

And from what the following photos show, it's looking like there are all kinds of different cars in whichever film is being shot at the moment, which is very on-brand for a Transformers movie.

Dorchester Square is seemingly one of the main locations for this current movie shoot.

We know Transformers: Rise Of The Beasts is for sure being filmed in Montreal, we simply cannot confirm this movie set is for the film — although it's highly likely to be. And if that's true, then that means Anthony Ramos, one of the main actors in the new movie, could be in Montreal. Keep your eyes peeled!
