Oscar-winning actress Charlize Theron was injured while shooting her new Paramount film, “Aeon Flux,” in Germany, but it wasn’t immediately clear how badly she was hurt.
Monday’s accident was apparently caused while Theron was doing her own stunts, Paramount Pictures spokeswoman Jasmine Madation said Tuesday.
Filming in Berlin has been halted to allow her to recover. It wasn’t known if the injury would require script changes or when the movie would resume production.
Theron’s publicist said she had no information about the cause or severity of the accident, but said the 29-year-old actress wasn’t hospitalized.
“She did sustain an injury on the set. It’s a very physically demanding role,” said Theron publicist Amanda Silverman.
“Aeon Flux” is set 400 years in the future, when disease has wiped out the majority of the earth’s population except for one walled, protected city-state, Bregna, ruled by a congress of scientists. Theron plays the title role of “Aeon Flux,” the top operative in the underground “Monican” rebellion, led by the Handlerd.
When Aeon is sent on a mission to kill the government’s leader, she uncovers a world of secrets, which makes her question everything she thought she knew.
Based on the Peter Chung animation shown on MTV.
