Actress Halle Berry has broken her arm on the Montreal set of her upcoming film, "Gothika," but will be back on the job next week, a Warner Bros. spokesman said.
The Academy Award-winning actress, who plays a criminal psychologist in the supernatural thriller, was injured while shooting a physically demanding scene, Warner Bros. spokesman Joe Everett said.
Several of Berry's co-stars, who include Robert Downey Jr., Penelope Cruz, and "Lord of the Rings" actor Bernard Hill, were on set at the time but it's not clear who else was in the scene with her. "It wasn't a stunt scene, it was just one of the physical scenes in a movie," Everett said. "Her arm didn't go the way it was supposed to."
Berry, 32, was taken by ambulance to a Montreal hospital, where she was treated for a broken ulna -- the bone that extends from the elbow to the wrist -- and released, Everett said.
The producers, Robert Zemeckis and Joel Silver, shut down filming until next Tuesday and were determining how to shoot around Berry's arm cast, he said.
About four weeks of filming remains in the nine-week production schedule.
Describing her experience in preparing for the film earlier this month, Berry told the syndicated TV show "Extra" in an interview, "It's turning into something that's really gritty and really, really scary."
