Stuntwoman Olivia Jackson that ultimately had to have her arm amputated after colliding with a camera crane.

Ik wil weten of er een reactie was van de regisseur of Milla Jovovich? Ik kan er geen banden mee vinden die hierover praten. Ik heb net de film bekeken en ze hebben geen enkele boodschap op de aftiteling opgenomen zoals 'in memory of' dedicated 'of wat dan ook.

Hebben ze het gewoon genegeerd en wachten het af en praten er nooit over?

Er was zeker een antwoord van Milla met betrekking tot Olivia Jackson.

Ze staat genoteerd op Facebook op

“I sit down to write this post with a heavy heart, because a terrible accident rocked our set on Saturday the 5th of September. My incredibly talented stunt double, Olivia Jackson, collided with a camera crane while performing a motorcycle stunt and it put her in the hospital with severe, multiple injuries. The cast and crew of Resident Evil: The Final Chapter have been totally devastated and are waiting with bated breath for news on her recovery – we now understand she is stable and being carefully monitored by very experienced South African doctors."

"We were going to pull the plug on production, period; it was close," she said. "What happened to Olivia was a nightmare, plain and simple. [Director Paul W.S. Anderson] was crying on the phone; I have never heard the man cry in the fifteen years that we have known each other, I mean it was the most shocking thing that I have ever been through, that Paul has ever been through and anyone on these movies has ever witnessed."

Ricardo Cornelius was geen stuntman, maar was eerder lid van de productieploeg.

Gezien het feit dat zijn overlijden (na enige tijd in coma liggen) ietwat meer aan de orde is dan een stunt die verkeerd gaat, heeft het schijnbare gebrek aan commentaar misschien meer te maken met aansprakelijkheidskwesties dan gebrek aan sympathie .

This accident did not happen during filming, which wrapped up on December 9. EW reports that an investigation into the accident may be ongoing.

"We are all deeply shocked and saddened by this tragic accident, which was out of anyone's control," a spokesperson for Constantin [Films the production company] said. "Our thoughts and prayers are with his family."
