Wow, that really sucks. Prayers go out to the deceased stuntman, the injured, and their families.

I really hope this film comes out on schedule, though, as I have been looking forward to it for some time now.

A stuntman was killed and six others injured in a fire while shooting an action scene in director John Woo‘s Chinese historical epic “Red Cliff,” the film’s crew and Chinese media said Tuesday.
The accident occurred Monday morning while filming an action sequence in Beijing, the crew said in a statement.

A small boat was set ablaze and collided with a larger boat as the filmmakers had intended, but the fire quickly raged out of control and engulfed both ships.

The person killed was a 23-year-old stuntman, the Beijing News reported, citing a local fire commander.
It was the latest setback to Woo’s massive production, which marks his return to Chinese-language film after a stint in Hollywood.
“Red Cliff,” about a well-known battle in feudal-era China, has suffered casting changes and set problems since it started filming in April last year.
