A freak accident on the set of Sherlock Holmes nearly resulted in the second casting replacement for Iron Man 2. During shooting of the Guy Ritchie project, Robert Downey Jr. was accidentally popped in the face by a 350-pound stuntman during a fight sequence. He was knocked unconscious briefly, but is apparently now doing fine. In fact, the actor refused a trip to the hospital upon reawakening and even reportedly wanted to go right back to shooting. He ended up with six stitches in his mouth courtesy of the on-set nurse.
Apparently a petrol tanker also exploded on the set last week, causing a two hour shutdown. Some sources claim the explosion came perilously close to actor Jude Law.
Is Sherlock Holmes cursed? Maybe we should consider going to 11 on our list of The Ten Most Memorable Cursed Movies.
