Shia LaBeouf's car crash accident appears to finally take its toll on the production of "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen". Although director Michael Bay has argued that the injury sustained by the young star would not affect the filming of the "Transformers" sequel, it seems that what has happened is the other way around.
TFW2005 reported that the first production unit has been given a one month break with the suggestion that it has resulted from LaBeouf's mangled fingers. Despite the fact that the first unit has been put in hiatus, the second unit will continue filming since the majority of footages shot by this team generally are shots like scenery, close-ups of objects and others that do not require the lead actors on-screen.
It is still unknown though whether the hiatus may have some effects on the release of the big-budgeted film which has been slated on June 26, 2009. Previously, a source close to the feature film project stated that LaBeouf's injury has cost the in-production movie to be losing at least two days of filming causing its production schedule to be rearranged.
LaBeouf was involved in a car crash incident at a West Hollywood intersection on Sunday, July 27, morning. From the accident, he sustained injuries to his left hand and knee causing him to undergo immediate surgery on his left hand. He is expected to come back shooting for "Revenge of the Fallen" within a month.
Starring also Megan Fox, Josh Duhamel and Tyrese Gibson among others, "Revenge of the Fallen" is said to be telling the story of the Autobots' battle with the titular villain, the Fallen. Allegedly, in this sequel, the Autobots are going to bring back their foe, Megatron, who has been killed in the first movie, in order to stop Fallen.
