A few days ago, Robert “Sherlock” Downey Jr. got knocked out by a 350 lb extra during the filming of a fight scene. RDJ was supposedly ‘drooling blood’, was revived by set medics and then had his inner mouth stitched up by a nurse.

A source on the Guy Ritchie directed movie reported, “Robert was accidentally caught on the chin by a thundering hook. He went flying and was out cold. He didn’t want to go to hospital and kept trying to get up. He’s a trooper. But there have been lots of other problems too.”

One of the problems the source is probably alluding to happened on Friday.

A gas tanker blew up on set forcing Guy to shut down production for a few hours.

There’s rumblings that the movie may be ‘cursed’.

Hmmm….

Who could’ve hexed Guy’s film????

The Strange Case of Mr Ritchie and the Cursed Movie

 

GUY RITCHIE’s new film Sherlock Holmes seems to be cursed after a string of nasty accidents.

 

Big hit ... Maillet

Big hit … Maillet

The cast and crew first wondered if they had a mystery fit for legendary detective Holmes on their hands when ROBERT DOWNEY JR was knocked out by a 7ft wrestler.

Then yesterday, he and JUDE LAW, 35 — who plays his sidekick Dr Watson — had to flee the set with Ritchie when a petrol tanker exploded in a fireball.

The Iron Man actor, 43, was knocked unconscious by 25-stone co-star ROBERT MAILLET during a fight scene.

Downey Jr — who plays the famous detective — was “out cold” for six seconds and “drooling blood” before medics could bring him round.

A nurse on set at Chatham dockyard in Kent gave him six stitches in his mouth.

A source said: “Robert was accidentally caught on the chin by a thundering hook. He went flying and was out cold.

“He didn’t want to go to hospital and kept trying to get up. He’s a trooper. But there have been lots of other problems too.”

Yesterday’s drama came as the loaded tanker burst into flames during a delivery to the set — forcing it to close for two hours.

The source added: “The crew have started joking about the curse of Sherlock Holmes.”
