Update: "Transformers 3" to film on Mall, clog downtown traffic next week

Optimus Prime in "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen." (Paramount Pictures)

It's official: After some debate, "Transformers 3" will indeed film on the Mall, next week. The city's Department of Transportation on Monday announced street closings and parking restrictions that seem to guarantee an impressive backdrop for the armies of Autobots and Decepticons, including key streets in front of the Capitol, at various points from Tuesday night through Friday morning. (For specifics, see The Post's Dr. Gridlock blog. See Also: "Battle of the Transformers starts even before the opening credits.") Unclear if actual human stars such as Shia LaBeouf or Josh Duhamel will be there -- a production rep did not return a call -- but Josh Friedman of the D.C. Film Office said there will be special effects. Blowing stuff up? "Low-level pyrotechnics," he said, "like you might see at a concert."
