Baz Luhrmann Injured on 'Great Gatsby' Set

Baz Lurhmann was injured on the set of The Great Gatsby on Thursday (December 22).

The 49-year-old Aussie director required three stitches after bumping into a camera crane, Australia’s Sydney Morning Herald reports.

”We were on quite a cramped set and he was ducking under the crane,” co-producer Anton Monsted told the Herald. ”He struck his head on the weights on the end of the camera crane. He split open his head and we had to get the doctor.”

Cast members including Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, and Carey Mulligan went home for the holidays a day early after producers decided to stop filming.

Here’s hoping for a quick recovery!
