"Transformers 3" will not return to Milwaukee

"Transformers 3" will not be returning to Milwaukee.

Crews used the Milwaukee Art Museum last month to film scenes with Shia LaBeouf and Patrick Dempsey.

They were thinking of using pyrotechnics at the empty Tower Automotive site. But Film Wisconsin spokesman Dave Fantle says changes to the production schedule made returning impractical.

VISIT Milwaukee has estimated the production brought $1 million to the area in salaries, hotels, food, fuel and equipment.

The movie is expected to be released next summer.
