'The Smurfs' Production Halted After Set Accident
Production of "The Smurfs" has been put on hold on Thursday, May 20 following an accident happened on the set. According to reports, a worker fell from a set lift which is 30 feet above the ground during the shooting at a top toy store in New York City.
The accident happened at around 6.30 A.M. after the man reportedly worked throughout the night. Paramedics were soon called to the spot and the set worker, whose identity has not been mentioned, was taken to Bellevue Hospital Center. New York Post claims the man is now in stable condition.
When the accident happened, director Raja Gosnell was shooting scenes at FAO Schwarz with Hank Azaria, who portrays villainous Gargamel. There has been no further information released on the news, including when the shooting will resume.
"The Smurfs" will follow the adventures of a mythical race of little blue creatures in medieval times that must deal with each other and humans, particularly an evil wizard obsessed with capturing them for his own sinister purposes. Neil Patrick Harris is cast as the primary live-action character while Katy Perry, Jonathan Winters, George Lopez and Alan Cumming will voice the diminutive blue beings. This animation will be released by Columbia Pictures on July 29, 2011 in the U.S.
