'The Great Gatsby' Director Split Open His Head on Set


Baz Luhrmann


Australian director Baz Luhrmann struck his head on the weights on the end of the camera crane, prompting a hospital care.

An injury on the set of "The Great Gatsby" has forced the production to come to a halt. The cast and crew were sent home for the holidays a day early after director Baz Luhrmann accidentally knocked his head on a camera crane.

Co-producer Anton Monsted told the Sydney Morning Herald, "We were on quite a cramped set and he was ducking under the crane. He struck his head on the weights on the end of the camera crane. He split open his head and we had to get the doctor."

Luhrmann, who is an Australian, got three stitches but the filming later resumed after his injury. "There's a few days owing due to rain and then there will also be what we would have shot had we continued filming after Baz's injury," Monsted said.

"The Great Gatsby", starring Leonardo DiCaprio, is aiming for December 25, 2012 release date. Monsted said that the filming has been going on extremely well this year, adding their only obstacle so far was the bad weather.
