Action Star Jason Statham Almost Drowns To Death On The Set Of THE EXPENDABLES 3

In a shocking, roughly English-translated update from Expendables Premiere forwarded from Bulgarian internet site, Skandalno.net, The Expendables 3 co-star Jason Statham nearly faced specific death although filming a harmful stunt for the upcoming summer 2014 release.
The report indicates that Statham was rushed to the Emergency Space soon after refusing to use a double to carry out a stunt involving his character diving into a pond. When the actor did not re-emerge, the actor was rescued and taken to the hospital where he later regained conciousness and returned to work a while following the physician reported his condition as non-threatening.

Unfortunately, stunt dangers are practically nothing new to the franchise, specifically for lead actor and action veteran Sylvester Stallone who received considerably-needed surgery for a hairline fracture in his neck soon after a walloping stunt in the course of a fight with former wrestler turned action star Steve Austin on the set of The Expendables (2010). The 2012 sequel, The Expendables two, also endured additional injuries for Sly and co-star Arnold Schwarzenegger, but also took a tragic on-set turn in Bulgaria back in 2011 for two of its stuntmen, with a single stuntman dying from his injuries.

There's a massive demand for a lot of actors to be able to execute their personal stunts, specifically with all the craze and popularity stemming from the rise of action heroes like Jackie Chan, Jet Li, Iko Uwais, Scott Adkins and Cyril Raffaelli to name a few. I do not function in the sector, but I do know that choices like making use of doubles are up to the actors who hire these specialists to do dangerous issues on screen that they're trained to do. The downside is that injuries do come with the territory, and we clearly see this when we look at behind the scenes clips and hear reports like the ones above this sentence. As fans, we all want the ideal out of an action movie from the actors we look up to as examples of heroism and death-defying tenacity. But I also grant that we all want to see these people alive to tell the tale, and live pleased and healthier lives performing what they love, and the stunt performers who go through great lengths to please action fans.

Personally, I want Statham all the very best. He walks a fine line for his fans, but I certainly hope he utilizes his better judgement as filming continues and his career maintains its flourishing status.

Statham, 45, is also a martial artist and former diver, best identified for performing his own stunts in films like The One particular, The Mechanic, Redemption and The Transporter Trilogy. The action star is also set to appear in the upcoming Thanksgiving release, Homefront, from director Gary Fleder, in addition to the July 2014 release of Rapidly And Furious 7.

Statham is also set to star in the August 6, 2014 release of the Simon West-directed Heat, a single week from the release of The Expendables three. The film at the moment stars Stallone, Statham and Schwarzenegger reprising their roles from the initial two films, along with Terry Crews, Dolph Lundgren, Jet Li and Randy Couture, in addition to Wesley Snipes, Harrison Ford, Kellan Lutz, Ronda Rousey, Victor Ortiz, Mel Gibson and Robert Davi. The film is directed by Patrick Hughes.
