Michael Bay Attacked in Hong Kong

Barbara DeFranco / October 17, 2013

Michael Bay was attacked on the Hong Kong set of Tranformers 4, according to a Reuters report.

The director was allegedly approached by two brothers demanding payment of HK$100,000 ($12,900). No word on why the two felt they were owed the money. Ultimately, police officers intervened when the discussion turned violent and Bay was left with injuries to right side of his face, but declined medical assistance.

This isn’t the first snafu for the fourth installment of the successful film franchise. In June, a fire broke out while the crew was filming in Texas, seriously damaging a 100-year old home.
