The next Transformers film is being rewritten to include Shia LaBeouf's "crushed" hand following a car crash last week, it has emerged.
LaBeouf's lawyer has admitted there is a chance the 22-year-old actor will not recover from the injury to his left hand, the CM reported.
"He will need regular medical supervision until his doctors clear him to return to work," said Michael Norris.
"His doctors remain hopeful that he will fully recover, but due to extensive surgery and the nature of the injuries, there remains a substantial risk of both infection and other complications."
Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen director Michael Bay has admitted the film's script is being reshaped to incorporate his young star's injury.
He told Access Hollywood: "His two fingers are pretty smashed.
"But we're figuring out a way to shoot around it, kind of write it into the story."
LaBeouf, who played Sam Witwicky in last year's live action Transformers film, was arrested on suspicion of drink-driving last Sunday following a collision between his truck and another car in Hollywood.
His passenger, Transformers co-star Isabel Lucas, and a female passenger in the other car both required minor hospital treatment following the incident.
But the Los Angeles county sheriff's department has suggested it may not have been Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull actor LaBeouf's fault.
A spokesman explained that police believed the male driver of the other car had ignored a red light.
