Conflicting reports in the Bulgarian press about what actually occurred during second-unit filming for The Expendables 2 when one stuntman was killed and another seriously injured have yet to be sorted out by officials, and spokespersons for NuImage/Millennium Films, which is producing the film, have shed little light on the tragedy. The company has expressed its "deepest condolences" to the family of stuntman Kun Lieu but said that neither Kun, nor Nuo Sun, his injured colleague, were, as some reports have indicated stunt doubles for Jet Li and Sylvester Stallone. "At the time of the accident neither Li's or Stallone's stuntmen were on or near the second unit set, nor were any of the film's main actors, director Simon West or any of the main unit crew," the statement said, adding that the "filmmakers continue to work with authorities investigating this accident." Besides Li and Stallone, the movie stars Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis, Jason Statham, Dolph Lundgren, Liam Hemsworth, Chuck Norris and Jean-Claude Van Damme.
