    No, we knew they were injured only. Not confirmation that they were suing until now.
    But of course they are. Who wouldn't?

    I don't think luck has anything to do with it. She'll win and she'll get boat loads.

    I guess my only question would be if that's covered by some sort of insurance or clause in the extra's contract that covers injury.

    If she did sustain serious injuries (hard to tell, they aren't being specific about them), than more power to her.

    With Bay's track record, I have a bad feeling watching the movie will cause similar, if not worse, injuries (yeah, sad attempt at a joke, but I had to try).

    50,000 is basically like 50 bucks to a studio like paramount.

    Won't be surprised if they settle for that.

    Honestly if she were smarter she could have sued for much, much more.

    She's not suing for $50,000. It's an unspecified amount that's larger than $50,000. Could be $50,001 could be $50,000,000, though in all likelihood it's probably not that extreme. Either way, Paramount's likely going to settle out of court. And quickly too. They won't want the negative publicity affecting the movie once they start to roll out the advertising campaign early next year.

    I'm curious though, how much does an extra make in a movie?

    THis is already on news and rumors forum (not that she was injured but that she is suing) and I just gave a long legal explanation that I don't care to retype. Can we just stick to the original thead please?

    Not alot especially compared to the stars, usually less than $100 for a simple walk past camera type appearance.

    and i agree on this not being a shock and that Paramount will settle out of court, lawyers are likely talking to other lawyers already.

    I dont think a franchise like this can get bad publicity. I could care less if anything happens on or off the set, most people will still watch the movies.

    Contrary to popular belief, some (if not most) jokes do require logic in order to be funny.

    Suing these days is the way to make easy money.
