Just over a month ago, we reported that stuntwoman Olivia Jackson (pictured above) was involved in a serious vehicle accident while filming a scene for the upcoming horror action film Resident Evil: The Final Chapter. Jackson was shooting a scene on a motorcycle and crashed into a mechanical camera arm which malfunctioned. The accident was so traumatic that she was put into an induced coma.
However, Jackson, who is actress Milla Jovovich’s stunt double, is now awake and has made a small statement about the extent of injuries suffered in that terrible event.
Per LifeIsSavage, which claims to be a friend of Jackson’s, a screencap states:
2 weeks in a coma, brain bleed, brain swelling, severed main artery in the neck, crushed & degloved face, several broken ribs, paralyzed arm, shattered scapula, broken clavicle, broken humerus, broken radius & ulna, with an open wound and a 7.5 piece of bone missing, amputated thumb, torn fingers, 5 nerves torn out of the spinal cord…. not my funnest day on set.”
She continued, thanking her husband, her mother, and everyone who sent her their support.
You can read Milla Jovovich’s Facebook post where she calls for support and prayers for Jackson’s recovery.
Resident Evil: The Final Chapter picks up after the events of Resident Evil: Retribution, as the Project Alice (Milla Jovovich) is forced to race against time before the villainous Red Queen attempts to destroy the final remnants of humanity.
Retribution left off at our Nation’s capitol, with the zombie army attacking the White House.
The cast is also said to include Wentworth Miller as Chris Redfield, Bingbing Li as Ada Wong, Sienna Guillory as Jill Valentine, and Johann Urb as Leon Scott Kennedy. This has yet to be confirmed.
Resident Evil: The Last Chapter is slated for release on January 27, 2017.
