Two news regarding the Transformers 3 Accident.
Reports are coming in that Gabriella Cedillo had to undergo brain surgery on Thursday afternoon. She is now in stable condition. It’s happy to hear that she’s recovering. Hearts of all Transformers Fans are with her… Wishing a full and fast recovery.
Meanwhile, Deadline Hollywood is reporting that Paramount has spoken to them, Nikki Finke writes…
“Paramount just weighed in with me to say that the injured extra was not involved in the stunt, that her car was not involved in the stunt, that a “freak accident caused her injury”, that she and her car were more than 500 feet from the stunt, that she was struck by a flying metal object whose welding had come apart and not by a steel towing cable, that the stunt from Tuesday had to be repeated Wednesday because of a “timing issue” and not because it had failed, and that “nobody has done movies more safely than Michael Bay”. The studio, however, could not explain why its version of events was so at odds with the local police and media reports. “We feel horrible that anyone was injured and will take all appropriate action,” a Paramount exec told me.”
Also, some reports say that the filming of Transformers 3 is halted temporarily, although no official statement was made regarding that.
