Kidman Hopsitalised Reshooting Invasion

[EDIT: TMZ now have video of the accident]

TMZ sez: Nicole Kidman has been put in hospital after a stunt on the set of The Invasion went awry. A car went out of control and crashed.

What dey didn't sez (ahem) is that these are reshoots, with principal photography long since completed, even forgotten. So, if Kidman's injuries somehow mean she can't finish the reshoots... what then? Go with the original version? That'd be a double catastrophe in PR terms, I think.

My lord.... what if the worst happens?

Sadly, a total of eight people were hurt in the accident, including a number of actors - one of them a young boy - and stuntmen.

[EDIT: Ms. Kidman was released after two hours. The boy, in the passenger seat, was apparently a trained stunt person. Thankfully, seatbelts were in use and no serious injuries have yet been reported]

There was a line in the BBC story about this which made me laugh: 'Kidman's publicist, Catherine Olim, said the star was trying to shake zombies off the bonnet of her Jaguar when the car spun off the road.'
