The Transformers spinoff is currently filming on Mare Island, Vallejo, California. Location manager Jonathan “J.J.” Hooks told the Times Herald the film’s ending was re-written to accommodate the island’s rustic locale.
It’s an Anywhere America, Back-to-the-Future type vibe. The great thing about Vallejo is there aren’t these huge chain stores. There a few other cities in California like it, but not that many. The city hasn’t been turned into a strip mall. The ending of the movie was re-written after finding the location.

Six months after leaving Chicago, Father Tomas continues his training to become an exorcist under the watchful eye of his partner Marcus Keane.
