An unnamed stunt man working on the 22nd James Bond film and the second starring Daniel Craig, Quantum of Solace, is in critical condition at a hospital in Italy after the vehicle he was driving, an Alfa Romeo 159, crashed during filming. This Is London posted a few scary photos from the aforementioned crash and another recent haywire vehicle stunt with an Aston Martin, the latter of which we’ve included here (click to pop). This marks the third such incident, and most major, on the film thus far, leading some of the Italian production crew to speak of a curse. What’s more, it’s unknown whether the scene with the Alfa Romeo will be reshot or scrapped altogether. Producers are purportedly discussing the situation.
While this isn’t a typical Slashfilm item, there’s no harm in recognizing the risk by industry stunt people that goes into making such complex action movies. More on the stunt driver’s condition as it develops.Cool Posts From Around the Web:
