‘Transformers’ sequel rewritten to include Shia Labeouf’s accident

London, Aug 3 (IANS) Director Michael, who is directing “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen”, admits that the sequel is being rewritten to incorporate Shia LaBeouf’s injury in a recent car accident. LaBeouf, who played Sam Witwicky in last year’s live action “Transformers”, was arrested on suspicion of drink-driving last Sunday following a collision between his car and another car in Hollywood. His hand was crushed in the accident.

Contactmusic.com quoted Bay as saying: “His two fingers are pretty smashed. But we’re figuring out a way to shoot around it, kind of write it into the story.”

LaBeouf’s lawyer Michael Norris also has admitted there is a chance the 22-year-old actor will not recover from the injury to his left hand.

“He will need regular medical supervision until his doctors clear him to return to work,” said Michael Norris.

“His doctors remain hopeful that he will fully recover, but due to extensive surgery and the nature of the injuries, there remains a substantial risk of both infection and other complications.”

LaBeouf’s passenger, “Transformers” co-star Isabel Lucas, and a female passenger in the other car both required minor hospital treatment following the incident.

But the Los Angeles county sheriff’s department has suggested it may not have been LaBeouf’s fault.

A spokesman explained that police believed the male driver of the other car had ignored a red light.
