The first unit of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen has officially stopped filming, due to star Shia LaBeouf’s hand injury. The second unit, which is responsible for less important footage, such as scenery or close ups, is still filming. No word yet on whether this delay will affect the release date of the movie. The unit is said to be out of action for 4 weeks, which is pretty unfortunate for the highly anticipated film.
Just goes to show you that Hollywood doesn’t get it… yet again. The movie is about Big, Frickin Robots! Yes, it’s unfortunate that Shia got hurt while the production was underway, but last I checked, the humans weren’t the centerpiece of the movie. Unless you’re talking about Megan Fox — she can be the center of my — Anyway, I understand that one of the big “stars” of the movie got hurt, but the real stars in my opinion are the guys that are doing the special effects and animation. That’s what made the movie “awesome” last time. That and Megan Fox
Why don’t they just write the thing into the story?
- Bumblebee didn’t like the tune up, so he f’d up Shia’s finger.
- Got a little too frisky with Megan Fox, so I came in and F’d up his hand.
- Any other reason you could possibly think of…
I really hope that there’s no delay in the release date of the movie because of this. If anything, this turn of events should lead to more robots, less people. But more Megan Fox. :-)
