Mark Wahlberg almost died filming Lone Survivor

Director Peter Berg revealed Mark Wahlberg had a brush with death while filming their upcoming war drama Lone Survivor. “I did blow him up, by accident,” Berg told Variety without going into further details. “That was close. We almost lost Mark, for real.” Not everyone avoided injury on set, as Berg said a stuntman climbed a cliff to perform a daring stunt. “I went up, I’m like, ‘What are you going to do?’” he recalled. “And he said, ‘Well, I’m going to run off this cliff, I’m going to leap off it, I’m going to hit that tree, I’m going to bounce off the tree, I’m going to hit a rock, and I’m going to bounce out.’”

The stuntman subsequently suffered three broken ribs and a punctured lung. Lone Survivor follows SEAL Team 10’s failed mission “Operation Red Wings” to capture or kill a notorious Taliban leader during the War in Afghanistan. The film is based on a book of the same name by soldier Marcus Luttrell and will receive a wide release January 10, 2014.  ~Raj-Kabir Birk

    If you “almost” lost him then he’d have an injury of some sort. You don’t “almost lost” someone when there isn’t a scratch on them.

    Marketing ploy, much?
