Nicolas Cage has broken is ankle in an apparent freak accident on set filming his latest movie #211 in Bulgaria. After the accident the 53 year old film star was then rushed to a Bulgarian hospital in the capital. Doctors at the Bulgarian hospital told Cage that they would need to operate, however cage refused to let the Bulgarian doctors operate on him and instead headed back home to Los Angeles for an operation on his ankle instead.
What exactly caused the the freak accident that broke Nicolas cages ankle remains unclear however it is believed that it might have been caused by a stunt gone wrong. Before shooting Nicolas cage told reporters of how he liked doing his own stunt and that he felt calm doing them adding “When they’re putting a bit of gel on my arm and lighting me on fire, or when I’m about to go into a high-speed car chase or rev a motorcycle up pretty fast, I find everything else around me slows down. I find it quite calming, which is an odd switch.”
Nicolas Cage is set to star as a police officer in the upcoming heist movie #211 which is a police code for “robbery in progress”. The film is being directed by York Alec Shackleton and will also star Amanda Cerny, Sophie Skelton and Michael Rainey Jr. The film was set to be relased later this year however filming has been cancelled since Nicolas cages injury thus it is unknown if the film will have to be postponed or not. A spokesperson for Nicolas cage has said that he is “currently convalescing, but that he hopes to return to the set probably and resume working within two weeks.”
