Jet Li Injured In Fight Scene Fall…. Martial arts action man Jet Li was left beaten and bruised on the set of his new movie Fearless when a terrified stuntman lost his balance in a fight scene – and the pair tumbled off a building.
Director Ronny Yu admits for a few seconds he feared Li had fallen to his death when the fight scene went awry and his leading man and a stuntman took a tumble off a building.
Yu explains, "Everybody was so scared to fight with him, but we had everything choreographed.
"Before filming I had a long conversation with Jet and we decided to do it all as real as possible, so we used wire work just for safety because.
"There was a tower fight, which was dangerous. The mattresses on the bottom helped, but he was so high up.
"Jet had an accident. One day we were supposed to do a very simple move up there and I was watching the monitor and all of a sudden I couldn’t find Jet.
He fell because his opponent was so scared of him.
"Once the camera started rolling he (stuntman) wanted to do it quick, rather than do 10 moves; he just pushed him (Li) and they both fell – and missed the mattresses.
"Luckily, it was grassland and soft mud so Jet probably just got a bruised bum."
