Oscar-winning actress Halle Berry broke her right arm while filming
a scene for the supernatural thriller "Gothika" in Canada,
a publicist for the movie said Thursday.
Berry, 34, was filming "one of the more physically demanding
scenes" when she was hurt Wednesday, said Joe Everett, a spokesman
for the Warner Bros. production.
Everett did not have details of the scene.
Berry broke her ulna, a long bone in the forearm, and was treated
at a Montreal hospital and released, Everett said.
The movie was in its fifth week of a nine-week shoot. It was unclear
when Berry might return to the set.
In the movie, Berry plays a criminal psychologist who wakes up
to find she is accused of murdering her husband and is a patient
in the asylum where she works.
The movie is set for release in October.
Berry won the Academy Award for best actress for her role in the
2001 movie "Monster's Ball."
She has been hurt before while filming. She suffered an eye injury
while filming an action sequence in Spain for last year's James
Bond movie, "Die Another Day."
