SHARE Willis sues studio over pyrotechnic injuries

Bruce Willis filed a negligence lawsuit against Revolution Studios for pyrotechnic injuries allegedly suffered during filming of the action film "Tears of the Sun."

The Superior Court lawsuit claims the actor suffered substantial mental and physical injuries during the October 2002 movie set accident in which he was struck in the forehead by a "projectile" after the movie's special effects personnel detonated pyrotechnic devices.

The explosions, known as squibs, were intended to "simulate the appearance of bullets striking the ground," according to the Oct. 20 lawsuit claiming Willis has endured "extreme mental, physical and emotional pain and suffering."
