Will we be seeing Luke Air Force Base in the upcoming Transformers movie?

It's looking like it. 

On Tuesday, a behind-the-scenes video was shared on the Transformers Facebook page, and showed actor Josh Duhamel at the Glendale base.

The 37-second montage video featured various aircraft and shots of the base's 944th Fighter Wing hangar, including director Michael Bay calling out, "3..2...1...action."

"We're going to see some F-16s, F-35s and God knows what else," Duhamel says in the clip. "Luke Air Force base is a gem for the U.S. Air Force and I'm proud to be here."

A studio representative for the film also confirmed to ABC15 Wednesday afternoon that some airmen at the base were used as extras

Loop 303 was closed back in June for a week while crews filmed for the movie. After filming wrapped, actor Mark Wahlberg posted a thank you message on Twitter.

The crew then moved on to Michigan to continue filming. Transformers: The Last Knight is expected to be released sometime next year.
