Rose McGowan's Injury Puts 'Red Sonja' on Hiatus


Talking about the movie adaptation of the 'She-Devil with a Sword' heroine, the star of 'Grindhouse' reveals the serious injury she suffers from doing a stunt for the film.

The production of "Red Sonja" has apparently been halted because lead actress Rose McGowan was seriously injured during a stunt. Fox News' Pop Tarts brought the matter into attention following a recent interview with the star of "Grindhouse" herself about the extent of her injury.

"I had wrist and elbow surgery and they took part of my elbow out. I had really bad nerve damage from doing stunts - I do a lot of my own stunts," the 36-year-old confessed. "I could no longer use my arm, but now I can hold a fork and drive so we're working our way up. It'll probably be another six months of rehab, but it's the price you pay for being really limber and being able to do back flips!"

In late August, McGowan has taken it to her Twitter account to clarify speculations surrounding "Red Sonja". On the post dated August 28, she wrote, "To clarify press reports: Red Sonja is delayed. I pulled out of doing it in '09. Not permanently.Hopefully will follow Conan." She then added that she is still very much involved in the project.

Adapted from Roy Thomas and Barry Windsor-Smith's comic series, "Red Sonja" follows the story of a young girl who lost her family and everything she has to group of mercenaries. Seeking revenge, the red-head becomes the most feared female warrior of all time. Producer Joe Gatta stated back in June that the movie will start shooting sometime in 2010. No release date has been set for it just yet.
