Actors injured on Resident Evil 5 set

11 zombies suffer two-storey fall

 
What's going on with zombie films? First the set of World War Z is raided by Hungarian SWAT to confiscate live-firing weapons, now 11 actors have been injured on the set of Resident Evil: Retribution
 
Milla Jovovich wasn't among those taken to hospital after they fell from a two-storey platform at a Toronto film studio. 
 
In fact, all 11 actors were dressed as zombies and true to form it takes a lot of damage to stop them - only relatively minor injuries were recorded by the paramedics and several actors went back to work the same day. 
 
Davis Films confirmed that the accident happened when a platform separated from the set, creating a gap that the actors fell through.
 
"It is with regret that we confirm this unfortunate accident," the company said in a written statement.
 
"The thoughts of everyone involved in the production are with those who have been injured and we hope that all have a quick and complete recovery. The filmmakers are continuing to work closely with the authorities in responding to this accident.”
 
Resident Evil is currently shooting in Canada and filming is expected to last until 23 December 2011.

      Its easy to forget there are normal people involved in these blockbusters, I hope those unfortunates make a speedy recovery.

      If only something worse happened that didn't involve injury or death (apart from Anderson) and stopped the film from being made.

      Yeah 'cos Dalidab never wishes bad things on others. Hypocrite. I agree that the end needs to come soon for these cr@p films. Does anyone actually enjoy watching the same thing again and again and again?
