According to Deadline, the injuries were scary, but everybody is doing fine. One of the injuries occurred when a painting fell from a height during pre-production for the film. The second happened when a stuntperson ran over a camera assistant’s foot with a slow-moving vehicle. A representative from producer Millenium gave a brief statement.
“The production of Expendables 4 is taking every precaution to ensure the safety of all crew.”
The Expendables franchise has been a dangerous one for crew members. In 2011, a stuntman was killed and another injured while filming took place in Bulgaria. A boat accident on set took the life of 26-year-old Kun Liu.
Stallone himself has talked about his injuries while filming for the franchise. He said he’s suffered injuries to his neck, spine, and shoulders. He even got some hardware in his back because of one of the injuries.
Since the deadly tragedy on the set of the Alec Baldwin film “Rust,” safety on the set has been in the public eye more than ever. Accidents are bound to happen, but studios should be going out of their way to prevent them. Fortunately, nobody was seriously injured or killed in this latest accident.
