An accident on the Toronto set of Resident Evil: Retribution this morning resulted in injuries to 16 people who are portraying zombies in the film. Fortunately it appears that none of the injuries are life-threatening.
TMZ broke the story that law enforcement sources say the actors were on a set that was on wheels … when the set suddenly moved, and the 16 actors plummeted roughly 20 feet down to the ground. The costumes they were wearing were so gory that at first officials had a tough time assessing the real injuries. All of the actors were transported to a local hospital with some being treated for arm, leg, and back injuries – and possible broken bones.
The Toronto Police Dept. and the Ministry of Labor are investigating the situation.
Written and directed by Paul Anderson, Resident Evil: Retribution stars Milla Jovovich, Boris Kodjoe, Shawn Roberts, Michelle Rodriguez, Sienna Guillory, Johann Urb, and Colin Salmon. Look for Resident Evil: Retribution in theatres on September 14, 2012 from Screen Gems.
