Movie tough-guy Sylvester Stallone is nursing an injured hand - he damaged his thumb practising fight scenes for his new action film THE EXPENDABLES.
Stallone has recruited an all-star cast of Hollywood hardmen - including Jet Li, Mickey Rourke and Jason Statham - to star in the upcoming project, about a group of mercenaries who set out to overthrow a dictator.
But the 62-year-old, who will also direct the movie, is already suffering after rehearsing his dangerous stunts - but insists the injury will not delay filming.
A spokesperson for the star tells WENN, "Mr. Stallone injured his hand practising realistic fighting for his upcoming film The Expendables. The injury was to his thumb (but) the production will be on location in Brazil later this month and then New Orleans."
