Dungeon Siege 2, starring Dolph Lundgren, has been rocked by an explosion during production that has injured six people on set.
The entertainment business seems to be living under a dark cloud at the moment, after an injury on the set of the third Transformers film recently left an extra completely paralysed, a fourth injury on the set of the Spiderman Broadway musical, and two coaches used by The Kings of Leon to tour the UK caught fire.
Thankfully, at the set of Dungeon Siege 2 no one was killed and none of the injuries are life-threatening, though they’re all receiving treatment for burns of varying severities. The explosion was thought to have been caused by a propane heater that was being filled at the time of the explosion.
The film, full title In The Name Of The King: Dungeon Siege 2, sequel to Dungeon Siege, had been progressing normally up until this point. The follow-up to the 2007 fantasy film is being directed by none other than Uwe Boll (pictured, on the set of the first Dungeon Siege film adaptation), that most ‘Marmite’ of directors – focus of many a fanatical supporter and harsh critic.
Hopefully filming will continue, but more importantly, the six individuals in the blast will recover fully, whether they return to work or not. Our thoughts are with you, on behalf of the TFR team.
