PopGoesTheNews.com Nearly a dozen crew members and actors dressed as zombies were taken to hospital this morning after part of a stage collapsed on the set of Resident Evil: Retribution.
The accident occurred inside Cinespace Film Studios in Toronto's west end at around 8:00 am on the second day of shooting scenes for the fifth installment of the franchise. A police spokesperson said the injuries were mostly fractures and bruises.
The actors were playing zombies that are being slayed in a sequence that was scheduled to take four days to complete. Make-up effects made it difficult for paramedics responding to the accident call to accurately assess injuries.
Production has been halted while investigators look into the cause of the accident.
The movie stars Milla Jovovich and is directed by her husband Paul W.S. Anderson. It has scheduled 55 days of production in Toronto.
