After Sam Witwicky's depicter, Shia LaBeouf, smashed his fingers on car crash, director Michael Bay speaks of the rewriting of the sequel's script.
For quite some time now, "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" has fallen into production as its stars and crew are shooting for the blockbuster sequel using Ehren Kruger, Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci's written script. However, the latest car crash incident involving its star Shia LaBeouf on Sunday, July 27, may after all affect the production in the sense that the script possibly has to be adjusted to his condition.
In an interview with Access Hollywood's Billy Bush, director Michael Bay revealed that the filmmakers behind the sequel may have to rewrite the script to explain about the injured hand of LaBeouf. Acknowledging that the 22-year-old actor has mangled two of his fingers in the unfortunate event, the 43-year old said, "I spoke to him yesterday in the hospital. His two fingers are pretty mashed, but we're figuring out a way to shoot around it, kind of write it in the story."
Despite Bay's remark on the matter, Paramount Pictures' representative insisted that the decision on the rewriting has yet to be drawn. In the meantime, though the shooting schedule has to be rearranged due to LaBeouf's absence, the second "Transformers" movie still continues its filming. Additionally, the star of "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" is expected to return for the production within a month.
Coming from the noted filmmaker Steven Spielberg, "Revenge of the Fallen" is a live-action adaptation sequel movie resolving around the battle between two alien robot clans, Autobots and Decepticons. Although the plot of "Revenge of the Fallen" has been closely guarded, it has been hinted that the Fallen on the title will be the main villain on the story. The film set for June 26, 2009 release sees Megan Fox, Josh Duhamel, Tyrese Gibson and John Turturro returning to reprise their role.
