Stuntman Dies on "The Expendables 2" Set

Posted: October 28th, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Stuntman Dies on "The Expendables 2" SetSubmit Comment
"The Expendables" sequel is currently shooting in Bulgaria, and now comes word that an accident left one stuntman dead and another injured. This happened while shooting a scene on the Ognyanovo dam, where the men were performing a stunt in a rubber boat that involved an explosion.

The injured stuntman is currently at a nearby hospital, where he underwent a five-hour operation. He is still unconscious, but in stable condition.

"It is with great regret that we confirm this unfortunate accident," said Millennium Films. "Our hearts go out to the families and those on the production affected by this tragedy. The filmmakers are working closely with the authorities in responding to and investigating this accident."

"The Expendables 2" is expected to wrap filming in December for an August 17th, 2012 release.

some angry IMDBer posted this he's suck a prick:
"Sad. Sucks he had to go like that: dying on the set to the sequel of a crappy movie."

Yet that IMDB poster took the time from their valuable life to post such a thing. What a tool (wait... Tool is dead in this one too, yes?).

This news sucks more than Lindsay at an audition.

And I was told if I always wore a rubber, I'd stay safe. Guess that's another lie I'll have to live with.

They better make this film right, otherwise it will be dishonoring those stuntmen.

Too bad Van Douche didn't die and I got to take care of his beautiful daughter for him.

This flick isn't even worth being injured by a paper cut, much less dying for it. Reminds me of the poor dude who died doing a stunt for Vin Diesel in XXX. They f*cking die and the poser stars get all the glory.

Speaking of dead stuntmen

Still one of the greatest high falls ever !!

RIP Dar and this guy too.

@tt - I knew Dar died doing a stunt... just can't remember which. Was it the car over the cliff? I can't stand heights. And that gets even worse with age for me. And that air-bag Dar was aiming for in that video is about the size of a tic-tac when he's that high up. Talk about brass balls!

Sad news but that's how the stunt work industry is, risks are made.

R.I.P, let's hope there is a tribute to the stunt man and The Expendables 2 turns out to better than the first one.

Ranger

yeah he died in a motor bike accident on the set of Million Dollar Mystery starring Tom Bosley.

It was a drive by at speed past the cameras and he missed stop point and went over a cliff.

They say he never broke a bone in his body performing stunts.

Lethal Weapon is dedicated to him, he'd just finished making that.

Like you say Major Brass Balls he had, One of the greatest (if not the greatest) High fall stunt guys ever.

@tt - re: Dar. I'd have to agree. I don't know of a greater stunt-person than he.
