Stuntman Killed on Expendables 2 Shoot Identified

The Expendables.

The stuntman killed in an explosion during the filming of The Expendables 2 has been identified as Kun Lieu. The accident occurred last week on a second unit location on Lake Ognyanovo, Bulgaria. Another stuntman, Nuo Sun, was also seriously injured, according to the movie's production company, Nu Image/Millennium Films. The company also sought to clarify what it dubbed "incorrect reports" that the injured stuntmen were the doubles for Sylvester Stallone and Jet Li: "This is absolutely false and inaccurate. At the time of the accident neither Li's or Stallone's stuntmen were on or near the Second Unit set, nor were any of the film's main actors, director Simon West or any of the Main Unit crew."
