Production of Sherlock Holmes 2 was reportedly halted after Jude Law accidentally hit co-star Robert Downey Jr. in the eye with the handle of a whip so hard that the actor was knocked down flat!
A source reveals:
“The cast and crew came running as Downey howled, filming halted while medics nursed his eye with ice bags — and Jude kept whining apologies. Hours later, medics determined the swelling had subsided, so after a bit of makeup magic — the scene was reshot.”
Ouchie! Poor thing!
Thank goodness that it wasn't any more serious! The eyes are such a sensitive area!
Hopefully this will remind everyone to try and be more careful while filming!
