Robert Downey Jr Hurt on "Sherlock Holmes" Set

Robert Downey Jr Hurt on "Sherlock Holmes" SetSubmit Comment
The Sun is reporting that the Guy Ritchie-directed "Sherlock Holmes" movie has had a few problems on set, two of which almost caused Robert Downey Jr to be seriously hurt.

While filming of a fight scene, Downey was knocked unconscious by a 7-foot, 330lbs co-star Robert Maillet (better known as wrestler Kurgan from WWE). Downey was "out cold" for six seconds and "drooling blood" before medics could bring him round.

A nurse on set at Chatham dockyard in Kent gave him six stitches in his mouth. A source said: "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 the hospital and kept trying to get up. He's a trooper."

The latest drama came as a loaded oil tanker burst into flames during a delivery to the set, forcing it to close for two hours. Both Downey and co-star Jude Law had to flee to avoid being injured.

The source added: "The crew have started joking about the curse of Sherlock Holmes."

For those people who report so accurately for Worst Previews : The guy who plays Kurgan was FORMERLY with the WWE. No guys, it's not the curse of Sherlock Holmes. It the curse of inept staffing on a friggin' movie set.

Ritchie said it would be kick ass and this news is certainly a great indicator of the physicality involved. hahaha Hilarious though. I can see Kurgan as a lumbering Holmes henchman, and I really hope they can use the shot in the final film.
