La la la la la la, la la la la lawsuit...

The people behind the Smurfs movie really blue it (at least according to a construction worker), who says an on-set accident left him all smurfed up - and now he's suing for $15 million.

Ryan Rodriguez filed the lawsuit against Columbia Pictures, Sony Entertainment, famed toy store FAO Schwarz, and more.

According to the lawsuit, FAO Schwarz in NYC was leased by Sony and Columbia as a shooting location back in May 2010.

Around May 20th, Ryan claims he fell off scaffolding inside FAO while doing construction on the set and "seriously and permanently" injured himself. He says the accident ruined his life and he's been unable to work as he used to.

Ryan claims Columbia, Sony, FAO Schwarz and the other defendants are responsible for the accident by failing to provide a safe place to work. Ryan wants $15 million in damages.

A judge has not yet made a ruling.

This is terrible. I remember hearing about this in the news when it first happened in May of 2010. I was wondering how the person was doing and how they recovered. Doesn't sound like he's doing so well still. Dang.

I guess these accidents happen on movie sets more than we'd like to think. Wasn't there a serious accident on one of the Harry Potter movies?


I love everything about Smurfs: The Lost Village Movie!!!
