Jet Li has donated HK$5.8 million (RM3.17 million) to the family of his stunt double, Liu Kun. Liu Kun was tragically killed on the set of The Expendables 2 in 2011.
Hong Kong entertainment sites have been reporting that the martial arts star had intended for the donation to remain a private one, but it’s already out now.
The family of the stuntman filed a wrongful death lawsuit in 2012 against Millennium Films and the movie’s stunt coordinator, following their son’s death in October 2011 while filming in Bulgaria.
They were awarded a meagre HK$195,000 after a protracted court battle lasting four years — is anyone surprised?
