MICHAEL CLARKE DUNCAN has sprained his ankle on the set of PLANET OF THE APES.
The larger-than-life actor, who plays a primate in TIM BURTON's remake of the 1967 CHARLTON HESTON movie, was over vigorous in a running scene at Sony Studios, Hollywood on Monday (16JAN01) morning and twisted his ankle.
The GREEN MILE star was sent straight to hospital where he was treated for a sprain. The movie's stars TIM ROTH, HELENA BONHAM CARTER and KRIS KRISTOFFERSON are having to spend hours in make-up to transform themselves into apes.
Bonham Carter has to get up at 1am to have her Ape Princess make-up applied and all the actors, with the exception of MARK WAHLBERG who plays the human Heston role have to wear special teeth. (LE/DV/PDD)
