Boat Crash in Filming of Big Fat Greek Wedding 3

ATHENS – Two speedboats carrying 16 actors and technicians filming the second sequel of My Big Fat Greek Wedding crashed on June 24, off the east coast of Attica, according to the coast guard.

The accident took place off Thymari beach, south of Athens, when one of the speedboats capsized during the incident causing an injury. The person with light injuries was transferred to the hospital as a precaution.

“They are all safe,” said a coast guard official.

Although the conditions of the accident remain vague, coast guard sources as reported by prototheme.gr, said that the collision off the coastal town of Palea Fokea was the outcome of poor calculation of distance and speed between the two boats. One of the speedboats carrying eight actors allegedly hit the other boat which overturned, throwing eight people as well as their equipment overboard.

The 2002 film is highly anticipated by fans who await to watch the story of young Greek woman Toula, played by actress and writer Nia Vardalos, as she tries to get her family to accept her non-Greek love interest Ian. The film was a big success, grossing about $368 million worldwide as well as an Oscar nomination for Vardalos in 2003, for best writing, original screenplay.
