Michael Bay has recently apologized for a scene in one of his production company's new movies, Project Almanac.
From The Hollywood Reporter
Families of two victims of a real-life 1994 Air Force crash recently expressed dismay to Paramount about a clip from the trailer for the studio's forthcoming time-travel thriller Project Almanac, according to the Air Force Times.
The scene shows characters watching footage of a plane crash that the loved ones of Col. Robert Wolff and Lt. Col. Mark McGeehan believe to be footage of the actual B-52 crash that killed the two men.
According to reports, Project Almanac producer Michael Bay said he didn't realize that the film's first-time director, Dean Israelite, had used actual footage of a crash instead of CG effects. Michael Bay added that he has asked Paramount to cut the scene from the movie.
"I let film directors make their movies at Platinum Dunes [Bay's production company> and give them tremendous responsibilities," Bay said in a statement released to the Times. "Well, unfortunately a very bad choice was made to use a real crash instead of creating a VFX [visual effects] shot, without realizing the impact it could have on the families."
