Eeeks!

A few days ago, Robert “Sherlock” Downey Jr. got knocked out by a 350 lb extra during the filming of a fight scene. RDJ was supposedly ‘drooling blood’, was revived by set medics and then had his inner mouth stitched up by a nurse.

A source on the Guy Ritchie directed movie reported, “Robert was accidentally caught on the chin by a thundering hook. He went flying and was out cold. He didn’t want to go to hospital and kept trying to get up. He’s a trooper. But there have been lots of other problems too.”

One of the problems the source is probably alluding to happened on Friday.

A gas tanker blew up on set forcing Guy to shut down production for a few hours.

There’s rumblings that the movie may be ‘cursed’.

Hmmm….

Who could’ve hexed Guy’s film????
