REBEL MOON Star Charlie Hunnam Reveals Serious Injury He Sustained Making Zack Snyder's Sci-Fi Movie

Rebel Moon star Charlie Hunnam has revealed that he sustained a serious injury on the set of Zack Snyder's upcoming Netflix movie, and he's now shared details on exactly what happened. Check it out...

There's a lot of excitement surrounding Man of Steel director Zack Snyder's Rebel Moon, particularly as the concept is one he originally pitched to Lucasfilm for a Star Wars movie. 

Inspired by Seven Samurai, the plan is for this to be a new sci-fi franchise on Netflix, akin to what the filmmaker has done with Army of the Dead (which has spawned a prequel and animated spinoff thus far). Rumour has it the movie will be split in two, while Snyder has had no issue assembling an impressive A-List cast. 

Among them are Anthony Hopkins, Djimon Hounsou, Sofia Boutella, Cary Elwes, and Corey Stoll, not to mention action movie veteran, Charlie Hunnam.

Unfortunately, he sustained a nasty injury while making Rebel Moon.

Talking to The Hollywood Reporter, Hunnam explained, "I just finished doing the Zack Snyder film and got injured again. I have a totally exploded S1 and S2 that are torn wide open, a hundred percent dehydrated." That's a reference to the hip/groin and thighs, so he's not doing great!

"It’s going to take two years to heal and I have a 40 percent tear on the ligament on the right side that holds my spinal column in place," he adds, explaining the consequences of this injury. "I am getting to a point where I’m less tolerant of getting injured and more eager to try and figure out ways to avoid that and mitigate that moving forward."

"But the intrepid nature of these experiences go hand in hand with the stories that I’m drawn to, so it kind of goes with the territory."

As for how the injury happened, Hunnam was quick to point out that it was "nobody's fault." The actor would go on to say, "I was training really hard for some big physical requirements that I had to do, but I had lost a lot of weight and not really been training for a few years during COVID."

"So then, really getting back to an aggressive regimen while not listening to my body or giving myself enough time to rest and trying to get as big as I could as quickly as I could, ended up just destroying my back."

Needless to say, we wish him a speedy recovery as it sounds like Hunnam has had a rough few months. As for Rebel Moon, that doesn't have a release date, but will stream exclusively on Netflix (likely sometime next year or in early 2024).
