Six injured in movie set explosion

By Alexandra Heilbron on December 22, 2010 | 9 Comments

Six cast and crew members of a film called In The Name Of The King: Dungeon Siege 2 were injured following a propane explosion yesterday afternoon on a set near Vancouver in Golden Ears Park. The six people, who were rushed to hospital, suffered minor burns and one had a broken leg. Crew members were filling up propane tanks from a truck when the explosion occurred. A hose came off the propane tank, and a nearby heater sparked a flash fire. “The explosion occurred as a propane heater was being filled,” said Ridge Meadows RCMP Cpl. Alanna Dunlop. Maple Ridge Fire Department Chief Spence said, “What made it a little difficult to diagnose these people is that many of them had black face paint on and medieval-type clothing from the movie set.” The film, a sequel to In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale, is directed by Uwe Boll and stars Swedish action film star Dolph Lundgren, who recently appeared with Sylvester Stallone in The Expendables.

    First of all, how did Uwe Boll get into Canada?

    The real catastrophe is the news of another Uwe Boll film.
