Michael Bay “Attacked on Transformers 4 Set”



300_bay_michael_052908Michael Bay, the director of the Transformers films, has been attacked by a man wielding an air-con unit on the set of the new ‘Transformers: Age of Extinction’ movie.

He, along with other members of the film’s crew, were assaulted during filming which is taking place in Hong Kong. The incident unfolded as the attacker apparently rushed onto the movie set, “swung the unit” at Bay’s head and missed before Bay wrestled the weapon away from him. The man has reportedly been arrested by police and Bay explained the attack on his official blog:

“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. One 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 couldn’t be better.”

Judging by Bay’s post, he didn’t let the attack knock him back and the filming of the news Transformers movie will continue as normal!
