What’s occurring with zombie films? First the set of global War Z is raided by Hungarian SWAT to confiscate live-firing weapons, now 11 actors was injured at the set of Resident Evil: Retribution. Milla Jovovich wasn’t among those taken to hospital once they fell from a two-storey platform at a Toronto film studio. In fact, all 11 actors were dressed as zombies and true to form it takes a large number of damage to prevent them – only relatively minor injuries were recorded by the paramedics and several other actors went back to work the similar day. Davis Films confirmed that the accident happened when a platform separated from the set, making a gap that the actors fell through. "It is with regret that we confirm this unfortunate accident," the corporate said in a written statement. "The thoughts of everyone keen on the production are with folks who was injured and we are hoping that each one have a snappy and complete recovery. The filmmakers are continuing to work closely with the authorities in responding to this accident.” Resident Evil is currently shooting in Canada and filming is anticipated to last until 23 December 2011.
