New James Bond Movie Is Jinxed

It was the second to last day of filming on northern Italy's beautiful Lake Garda and the third spectacular accident in less than a week.

Insiders on the set of Quantum Of Solace are already speaking of a jinx following a series of mishaps in the shooting of the latest escapade of Her Majesty's favourite secret agent, Daniel Craig.

Last weekend British engineer Fraser Dunn, 29, cheated death after he crashed a £134,000 Aston Martin DBS into the water at Lake Garda.

Just a few hours later, a Greek stuntman suffered serious head injuries after the Alfa Romeo 159 he was driving in a chase scene ploughed into a lorry.

The stuntman had to be cut free from the mangled wreckage of the car by firefighters following the accident at Limone dell Garda near Brescia. He was then airlifted to a hospital and as of today remained in critical condition with serious head injuries. Another stunt driver Italian Bruno Verdirosi suffered minor injuries.

One set insider said: "There is talk of a jinx on this movie - three accidents in a week even for an action spectacular like James Bond is too much."

Stupid Halle Berry was hurt in 2002 during the making of Die Another Day as Pierce Brosnan was filmed shooting at a helicopter.

In 1997, during the filming of Tomorrow Never Dies, Pierce Brosnan was hit by fragments of a bullet and scarred.

In 1967 during You Only Live Twice with Sean Connery a stuntman lost both his legs in the rotor blades of a helicopter.
