About 17 zombie actors were injured in an accident on the sets of upcoming movie Resident Evil: Retribution, which is directed by Paul WS Anderson. According reports, they were shooting for the 3D science-fiction action film at Cinespace Film Studios in 777 Kipling Ave when they fell from a platform created for filming.
Reports suggest that the accident took place after a portion of a platform on a stage shifted or collapsed under the weight of 50 workers. According to the Toronto Police, the victims complained of leg and back injuries. They immediately rushed 11 people to hospital, while six others were treated by EMS on site.
According to police officials, none of the injuries were considered life-threatening, but it was a horrific scene for rescue workers at first. It was really difficult for them to assess the severity of the actors' injuries as the victims were sporting gory zombie costumes.
However, Resident Evil: Retribution is the fifth installment in the series of horror movies, which are based on the video games. The film, which features Milla Jovovich, Michelle Rodriguez, Kevin Durand, Sienna Guillory and Ali Larter, is expected to be released in September 2012.
