Transformers Script May Be Modified to Include LaBeouf’s Injury

The script for the Transformers sequel may have to be re-written to accommodate Shia LaBeouf’s hand injury. In a recent interview, the film’s director Michael Bay said that LaBeouf’s hand was so severely injured that the script may have to be adjusted.

“His two fingers are pretty smashed, but we’re figuring out a way to shoot around it, kind of write it into the story,” Bay said.

A rep for Paramount Pictures stated that no final decision had been made.

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, the sequel to 2007’s blockbuster hit, is currently in production. Bay has resumed shooting without LaBeouf, who isn’t expected to return to the set for another month.

Shia LaBeouf’s car accident has caused the Transformers film schedule to be adjusted and several days of shooting have been lost because of his absence.

LaBeouf was charged with misdemeanor DUI following a car accident in West Hollywood in which his left hand was severely injured, requiring surgery. Australian actress Isabel Lucas was also in the car and has a supporting role in the Transformers sequel.

Police have determined that the other driver, who is yet to be identified, caused the accident.

Michael Bay has quickly come to the defense of his leading man and insists that he was not intoxicated at the time of the crash and says that “that’s gonna go away.”
