Injured 'Transformers' extra sues Paramount

Posted on

An extra who was badly hurt on the set of Transformers 3 is suing Paramount for negligence in connection with the Sept. 1 accident that left her with severe head injuries. Gabriela Cedillo, 24, claims that the studio is responsible for the incident, in which a metal cable fell through the window of her car during an action sequence. “We are all terribly sorry that this accident occurred,” said a Paramount spokesperson in a statement. “Our thoughts, prayers and best wishes are with Gabriela, her family and loved ones.  The production will continue to provide all the help we can to Gabriela and her family during this difficult time.” Transformers 3 is slated for release on July 1, 2011.
