ELGIN, Texas and TAYLOR, Texas (KXAN) - The unnamed fourth 'Transformers' movie is being filmed in Central Texas.
Filming continues in Elgin and Taylor this week for the newest 'Transformers' installment.
One of the production sites is the Elgin Cotton Oil Mill, where owner Brian Lundgren says he's excited for the Hollywood blockbuster to film.
"This is the first big movie that we've ever, you know, been involved with," Lundgren said. "I've watched one of them. I watched with my son one time. It's pretty interesting, pretty neat movie."
Lundgren says his business was approached early this year about being one of the sites for the film. The production crew has been on site for over a month.
"They started back the first part of May," he said , "so they've been here five or six weeks."
Elgin isn't the only city that will play host to Hollywood director Michael Bay.
Filmmakers will travel to Taylor, where streets will be closed Wednesday and Thursday of this week.
"It's been really cool to see them working on that down over there on the corner," business owner Joshua Gonzales said, referring to a thrift store and 2nd and Main streets where workers could be seen putting up lights.
"They're gonna blow it up and do some amazing things, race a car around the corner," Gonzales said.
Filmmakers were in Pflugerville last week shooting scenes of the action-packed movie.
They plan to shut down streets in downtown Lockhart next week while filming other scenes there.
Even though they're filming in four cities over three weeks, the filmmakers aren't getting any tax incentives from the state .
The Texas Film Commission says they "do not expect the production to qualify for the Texas Moving Image Industry Incentive Program because they are not shooting 60 percent of their total days in Texas."
To qualify for the incentives, filmmakers much spend 60 percent of their shooting days in Texas, spend at least $250,000 in the state, and the cast (including extras) and crew must be at least 70 percent Texas residents.
The film is set for release in June 2014.
