Hollywood Film Crews Make Indiana Their Set

Last updated on Friday, August 13, 2010

(GARY, IN) - Hollywood was in northern Indiana this week.

A "Transformers 3" film crew spent hours Wednesday in Gary making their next blockbuster movie.

The crew filmed outside the former Lehigh Cement Plant. Part of the movie draw is that Gary can appear to be foreign country with abandoned buildings, the close proximity to Chicago is also helpful.

Film experts say more movies might be made in the Hoosier state but the tax incentive is not there.
