Tim Burton rushed to hospital

May 6th, 2015

Tim Burton was rushed to hospital after being injured during the shooting of his latest film.

The 56-year-old director - who is currently filming 'Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiars' in Blackpool, in the North West of England - hurt himself on Monday night (04.05.15) while taking a break from shooting and was quickly rushed to A&E.

Tim was taken straight to the Victoria Hospital, where his assistant is said to have requested a private area be sectioned off for the star, reports The Sun newspaper.

Luckily, the Golden Globe-winner was informed that he hadn't broken any bones and the film's busy shooting schedule will continue with a special stunt scene set to go ahead around the town's iconic Blackpool Tower this week.

His publicist said: ''Tim attended hospital with a minor injury, no breakages.''

The fantasy picture, which is due to hit cinemas in 2016, stars Samuel L. Jackson and Dame Judi Dench, and is based on the best-selling children's novel of the same name by Ransom Riggs.

The cast and crew are said to have arrived in Blackpool last week to start filming.
