'Transformers 4' Director Attacked on Set in Hong Kong


American director and producer Michael Bay was injured on Thursday in an attack in Hong Kong during filming for his latest Transformers movie.


Official Statement from Michael Bay Himself

"Hi, it's Michael.

Yes, the story is being passed around is not all true! Yes, some drugged up guys were being belligerent asses to my crew for hours in the morning of our first shoot day in Hong Kong. On guy rolled metal carts into some of my actors trying to shake us down for thousands of dollars to not play his loud music or hit us with bricks.

Every vendor where we shot got paid a fair price for our inconvenience, but he wanted four times that amount. I personally told this man and his friends to forget it we were not going to let him extort us. He didn't like that answer. So an hour later he came by my crew as we were shooting, carrying a long air conditioner unit. He walked right up to me and tried to smack my face, but I ducked threw the air unit on the floor and pushed him away. That's when the security jumped on him. But it took seven big guys to subdue him. It was like a Zombie in Brad Pitt's movie World War Z—he lifted seven guys up and tried to bite them. He actually bit into one of the guards Nike shoe, insane. Thank god it was an Air Max, the bubble popped, but the toe was saved.

Then it took fifteen Hong Kong cops in riot gear to deal with these punks. In all, four guys were arrested for assaulting the officers.

After that, we had a great day shooting here in Hong Kong. The place could be better."

Wow, that's crazy! How were they able to get so close to him to begin with if it was on the set? I know you have to go through a line of people (typically) before anyone can just go up to the director. Crazy, and glad he wasn't hurt too bad.

I don't know man. Pretty wild though. I wonder how long until some paint inhaling yahoo comes in here and comments about how they were just angry he "ruined Transformers" or some other variety of the nature.

I bet they wanted even more explosions.

It's an omen; stop making movies Michael Bay!!!

But who will they hire then to destroy our childhood cartoon series with terrible movies?

Paul W.S Anderson (Resident Evil). He's been ruining my favorite video games for years by riddling them with explosions, random slo-mo, bad acting and unlikable protagonists that take the spot light from what should actually be the protagonist. Sadly Hollywood isn't short of a few useless d-bags that'll ruin GOOD original material :/

Don't want you to think i'm all negativity so i'll leave on a nice note, glad the security guard's toes weren't hurt xD


am I the only person thinking Triads? He probably owed a gambling debt

I would cast them in Turtles.
