Director Baz Luhrmann suffered a mild head injury on the set of his latest film The Great Gatsby, which allowed the cast (including stars Carey Mulligan, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Tobey Maguire) and crew to go home a day earlier than planned for the Christmas holiday.

Baz Luhrmann reportedly cracked his head on a camera crane while maneuvering about the tightly packed set. Producer Anton Monsted told reporters the following.

"We were on quite a cramped set and he was ducking under the crane. He struck his head on the weights on the end of the camera crane. He split open his head and we had to get the doctor."

All of the cast and crew will return next year to resume filming on this adaptation of the classic F. Scott Fitzgerald novel.
