16 actors injured on Resident Evil movie set

I'll bet that even the people who were hurt can see the funny side of this.
Not that their injuries are funny, but I'd love to have seen the reaction of the paramedics arriving on the scene. :D

And the look on the zombies faces when the paramedics offered them green and red herbs.

I bet they just injured themselves because they just couldn't stand being a part of a Resident Evil movie. I know I would break my own leg to get away from Paul W Anderson if I had to :wink:

Haha, sounds like the sort of storyline they'd run on Casualty.

I can just see them all sprawled in a big pile of grasping arms going 'Unnnnggghhh', 'Aggghhhhh', 'Urrrrr'.

Ha! :lol:

Police constable Tony Vella said the actors were on a on a high-wheeled platform which moved as they attempted to transfer to another one, leaving a gap for them to fall through.


Does that sound too much like this to anyone else: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=McotoXheEl4

Also CVG, I may have I missed it but I'm sure you haven't reported this: Ada Wong has been cast! http://uk.movies.ign.com/articles/119/1199483p1.html

((MILD SPOILERS))
I'm not sure if you chaps want to read this but here's the character list and whose playing them:
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1855325/

This film is going to suck the casting, the thing from above if you checked out the link; these films are progressively worse!!!

And since there will be another film at least :cry: You can bet Paul Anderson will steal ideas from Resident Evil Revelations.

Seems like a legit casting strategy to me. "You want to be a zombie? Ok, fall off this platform, if you live, you get the part and we won't have to apply makeup due to your injuries. If you die - zombie acting is not for you".
