Baz Luhrmann had to cut shooting short after getting injured on the sets of The Great Gatsby.

The director had to have three stitches on his head after a crane hit him, while he was filming his version of the classic tale - starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan and Tobey Maguire.

The set was shut down a day early for the festive holidays as a result and the cast and crew will re-group in early 2012 to continue shooting.

“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,” Contactmusic quoted co-producer Anton Monsted as saying.
