Nicolas Cage yesterday broke his ankle on the set of the bank heist action film #211 in Bulgaria.
According to sources, the 53-year-old actor was taken to a hospital in Sofia, Bulgaria, close to the movie location before flying back to Los Angeles for further treatment.
Doctors wanted to operate immediately. But Nicolas insisted on flying back to California to have the operation.
It is unclear how Cage broke his ankle but some reports say it was the result of a “freak accident”.
The movie is directed by Millennium Films and Nu Image. The directors have not said how the accident will affect the filming.
But we hope Nicolas recovers soon.
The movie #211 follows a bank robbery with a good cop (Nicolas Cage) trying to thwart the heist.
In police code, 211 means robbery in progress.
