“Hangover 2” crash lands stuntman in Thai hospital

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: We’re not going so far as to say the “Hangover 2” production is cursed – it’s certainly no “Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark” — but the sequel has had a fair share of problems since getting underway.

The latest involves stuntman Scott McLean, who currently is in a Thai hospital recovering from serious injuries after a high-speed stunt on the film’s set went wrong, according to the Daily Telegraph. Pop Eater goes one step further, reporting that McLean is “in a coma.”

The Telegraph reports that two cars “travelling at high speed crashed into each other in Bangkok as part of the stunt.”

“Hangover 2” made headlines earlier this year when Mel Gibson was tapped by director Todd Phillips to play a tattoo artist in a cameo, but an uproar from the cast and crew reportedly led to Gibson’s dismissal. He was replaced by Liam Neeson.

The “Hangover” sequel will continue filming. It is working toward a May 26, 2011 release date.
