Director Tim Burton was rushed to hospital after being injured on the Blackpool set of his latest movie “Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiars”.

The 56-year-old director – who is currently filming in Blackpool, in the North West of England – hurt himself while taking a break from shooting and was quickly rushed to the hospital, reported Independent.

Burton was taken straight to the Victoria Hospital, where his assistant is said to have requested a private area be sectioned off for the star.

Luckily, the Golden Globe-winner was informed that he hadn’t broken any bones and the film’s busy shooting schedule will continue with a special stunt scene set to go ahead around the town’s iconic Blackpool Tower this week.

His publicist said: “Tim attended hospital with a minor injury, no breakages.”

The fantasy picture, which is due to hit cinemas in 2016, stars Samuel L Jackson and Dame Judi Dench, and is based on the best-selling children’s novel of the same name by Ransom Riggs.

The cast and crew are said to have arrived in Blackpool last week to start filming.
