Shia LaBeouf was hospitalised on Tuesday (June 23) after sustaining a minor head injury on the North Dakota set of his latest film, American Honey.
While shooting a scene in which his character drives his head through a glass window, the actor accidentally cut both his head and his index finger, and was taken to hospital where he was given stitches. LaBeouf, 29, has since been released from hospital and is due to resume shooting in Williston, North Dakota today (June 25).
The film’s producers told Variety: “Shia LaBeouf sustained minimal injuries late last night on the set of his current film, American Honey. As protocol, production sought out medical attention, and Shia received stitches on his hand and for a laceration on his head. He is due back on set tomorrow.”
LaBeouf began filming indie road movie American Honey last month (May). The film is being directed by British film-maker Andrea Arnold, whose previous directing credits include 2009’s Fish Tank and 2011’s Wuthering Heights. LaBeouf’s next film to arrive in cinemas will be apocalyptic war thriller Man Down, in which he co-stars opposite Kate Mara, Jai Courtney and Gary Oldman. It’s set for release this October.
