Halle Berry was rushed to the hospital Tuesday night for a minor head injury she suffered during the shooting of a fight scene for her latest film, “The Hive.”
Sources report the actress received the injury from a hard fall against the concrete set, but according to Berry’s representative in a statement to Liveline Live Wednesday morning, she is “better now.”
Berry received treatment at the Los Angeles Cedars-Sinai Medical Center at around 10 p.m. late Tuesday according to TMZ, and has since been released. While the gravity of her condition was uncertain at first, doctors found no serious harm and discharged her in a matter of hours. Berry’s rep confirmed that production is set to continue uninterrupted.
At 45-years-old, the Oscar winner has had her share of missteps. She has previously banged her head during a stunt gone wrong in the filming of “Catwoman,” bruised her eye in the James Bond flick “Die Another Day,” broke her arm for a scene in the horror-mystery “Gothika,” and earlier this year, the injury-prone actress broke her foot while shooting “Cloud Atlas,” a science fiction film due in theaters late October.
“The Hive,” a thriller co-produced and financed by WWE Studios and Troika Pictures, is scheduled for release sometime next year. Directed by Brad Anderson, whose works include such films as “The Machinist” and “Transsiberian”, the film stars young actress Abigail Breslin along with Berry. Filming will resume in the Los Angeles area.
