Michael Bay Forced to Apologize for 'Project Almanac' Plane Crash Scene

Michael Bay apologizes for film's plane crash scene and will cut it from the upcoming feature film Project Almanac. 

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 Almanacaccording 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."
