Hong Kong - Film director Michael Bay is back on the set of his latest movie after being attacked by two men in Hong Kong. Bay was injured last Thursday (October 17) when two brothers confronted bay and demanded around $13,000. Paramount Pictures said one of the men threw an air-conditioning unit at him, but Bay ducked and was not seriously injured. Both men were arrested by police.

One of the movie's crew members was verbally threatened again Tuesday (October 22) and police arrested four men in that incident. Shooting continued in a different parts of the city Thursday) under heavy security. Two Hong Kong residents said they were embarrassed after hearing about what happened to Bay.

A female student hoped that the incident doesn't hurt the city's reputation and a salesman said how could anyone think they could extort money from a film director?

Bay is shooting the fourth installment of the Transformer series called, Transformers: Age of Extinction. Scenes in the movie were also filmed in Detroit this past summer. It's due to be released June of next year.
