Injured star Shia LaBeouf’s most dangerous scenes are yet to come, Roberto Orci, co-writer of “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen,” told Scifi.com.
Shia arrived back on the set last week following his July 27 car accident and subsequent hand surgery, from which he remains bandaged.
“We incorporated his injury into it,” Orci said. “Not because it was absolutely necessary, but [director] Michael [Bay] in particular wanted to be able to protect him on the set. [Bay] wanted to make sure that we weren’t playing around with his injury.”
According to Orci, the film – the sequel to 2007 box office smash “Transformers,” which also starred Shia – is not being shot in sequence and the most intense action scenes are coming up soon. Shia, of course, will be right in harm’s way.
“That stuff, it is important to put him in there,” Orci said. “He’s still going to be running around in this movie.”
