The wrong kind of drama ensued during filming for 's World War II epic Fury when a stuntman was stabbed with a bayonet. The unnamed man, 35, was punctured with the blade in an accident and airlifted to the nearby John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford, England.

Fortunately the guy 'left the set laughing and talking.' They're a professional bunch, stunt workers. 's broken pretty much every bone in his body and he's always smiling, isn't he?

A rep for Fury's production company said,

There has been an accident between two professional stuntmen which happened in a rehearsed action sequence. It was an accident. It is obviously very unfortunate. He left the set laughing and talking.

Let's just be grateful that the stuntman in question is relatively unharmed, as some of this year's biggest blockbusters have had some bad accidents. 's stuntwoman cracked her head open on Kick-Ass 2, and chipped 11 vertebrae filming Thor: The Dark World. Mercifully, both women are now recovered.

Fingers crossed that Fury finishes production free of stabbings, accidents and general mishaps. Are you looking forward to seeing the World War II tank drama?
