Truly Julie got some inside info from the set of Transformers 4. Director Michael Bay was allegedly attacked by two brothers who demanded 13 thousand dollars while he was filming in Hong Kong. Bay recalls the guys as being "drugged up". The director refused to be extorted...and that's when one of the brothers allegedly attacked him a plastic air conditioner.
An insider source, who's on the Hong Kong set, tells Julie that had it not been for the security team on site, the altercation would've been a lot worse. Bay reportedly suffered some scratches on his face...but all is good and he wasted no time in getting back to directing. The inside source also tells Julie that the overall experience of filming Transformers in Hong Kong has been somewhat frustrating due to the overly aggressive Hong Kong paparazzi. In his words..."there's zero respect".
The Transformers team will shoot for 9 more days in Hong Kong then move onto filming scenes in mainland China for 10 days. Transformers 4 also filmed in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
