Guy Ritchies Sherlock Holmes cursed?November 29th, 2008 - 4:50 pm ICT by ANI
London, November 29 (ANI): Guy Ritchies latest flick Sherlock Holmes has been dubbed cursed following a series of serious accidents on the films sets.
The Brit directors cast and staff have reportedly had enough of their hands to question if they had a mystery to solve after Robert Downey Jr was made to see the stars by a 7ft wrestler.
The 43-year old, who stars as the famous detective, was put out by 25-stone co-star Robert Maillet during a fight scene and had to have six stitches in his mouth before drooling blood.
Robert was accidentally caught on the chin by a thundering hook. He went flying and was out cold, the Sun quoted a source as saying.
He didnt want to go to hospital and kept trying to get up. Hes a trooper. But there have been lots of other problems too, the source added.
The knock-off is said to have come after he, co-star Jude Law and Ritchie had to escape from a petrol tanker that burst into flames halting the shoot to close for two hours.
The source added: The crew have started joking about the curse of Sherlock Holmes. (ANI)
