Christoph Waltz injured prepping Django Unchained

TF was all “Ooooooh” when we heard Kurt Russell was replacing Kevin Costner on Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained . But we were all “Owwwww” when we heard Christoph Waltz had dislocated his pelvic bone in a horse riding accident during pre-production of the same film.

According to a statement from his agent, the Oscar-winning actor was injured while training with his horse in preparation for the role.

“Waltz is currently being treated for a dislocated pelvic bone and is looking forward to getting back in the saddle,” the statement added.

The actor will miss the New York Film Festival premiere of Roman Polanski's Carnage while he recovers.

Django Unchained is currently in pre-production, with the shoot due to start in November.

The film also features Leonardo DiCaprio, Jamie Foxx and Samuel L. Jackson and is set to open in the US on 25 December 2012.
