'Transformers 4: Age of Extinction' Spoilers: Movie Being Sued For Breaking Contractual Obligations? [VIDEO]
Transformers 4: Age of Extinction has gotten into some fresh trouble a good while after its release and raking in record-breaking bucks.
The Wulong scenic area is reportedly suing the producers for not honoring the contractual obligations. Permission to film at the location was given on the condition that "China Wulong" be featured in the movie, which was missing from the final product.
The authorities believe that this could also discourage future tourists from visiting the location.
The Chinese producers who collaborated with the Age of Extinction team, have their own justification in place. One of the executives spoke to CCTV.com.
"I e-mailed Paramount as soon as possible. Paramount said their production company ILM did get the instruction, but maybe made a mistake," he said. "The staff don't know Chinese. When I watched the movie premiere in Hong Kong with my American partner Mark, he said look, the 'China Wulong' stone tablet is really good. I double checked with him, and said do you mean these three characters? He said 'Yes, isn't this 'China Wulong'?' I said 'No.' It's a language problem," said head of 1905 Internet Technology company Liang Longfei."
The movie is directed by Michael Bay and stars Michael Wahlberg, Jack Reynor, Nicola Peltz and Stanley Tucci.
Transformers: Age of Extinction hit theaters on June 27, 2014.
