The Dark Knight Strikes Again

So is the summer blockbuster The Dark Knight cursed? We all began mourning the loss of Heath Ledger after his sudden and tragic death in January and just this past Sunday Ledger’s co-star in the movie, Morgan Freeman, almost lost his life when he was in a terrible car accident. From People,

“According to Williams, Freeman’s 1997 Nissan Maxima was heading eastbound on Mississippi Highway 32 when the car went off the edge of the road and overturned several times before coming to a stop.

A passenger, identified by police as Demaris Meyer, was also in the car with Freeman.

Once emergency crews – using the jaws of life – removed Freeman and the passenger, both were airlifted from the accident scene to the Regional Medical Center at Memphis, where a spokesperson says Freeman is currently in serious condition.

“All I can say is one word: His condition is ‘serious,’ ” says Kathy Stringer, the hospital rep. She had no information on the other passenger.

When the actor was pulled out of the car, “he was conscious, coherent. He was talking,” according to eyewitness Clay McFerrin, who is the editor and publisher of The Charleston Sun-Sentinel. “He even seemed to have a sense of humor.”

I know that this isn’t the usual type of hookup/breakup story we usually run on Hollywood Heartbreaker but this whole movie seems to be cloaked in heartbreak and tragedy. Sad pun intended. I’m so happy that it sounds like Freeman will be okay after he spends some serious time recouping. He is a wonderful actor and it would be a real loss to the world if the accident had taken his life.
