VIERA — We’ve just confirmed that scenes from the move “Transformers 3” will be shot at the Kennedy Space Center in September.

Space Coast Film Commissioner Bonnie King tells Central Florida on Demand that filming will last about eight days in early September.

She said location scouts have visited the area for two to three days at a time, looking at other areas to shoot. Those included Patrick Air Force Base; Space Coast Regional Airport, in Titusville; Merritt Island Airport; Lone Cabbage Fish Camp, in Cocoa; and a Cocoa Beach house.

Scouts also checked out some swamps and went into the woods.

Film Director Michael Bay shot scenes for 1998’s “Armageddon” at Kennedy Space Center. King said Bay is familiar with the area, which is why he chose it again for “Transformers 3.”

Dr. Leslie Bartlett, president of the Florida Motion Picture and Television Association, told Central Florida on Demand that the only other confirmed shooting location for the film is Chicago.
