Bruce Willis has filed a lawsuit against the producers of TEARS OF THE SUN, claiming he suffered "substantial injuries" during the making of the 2003 movie.

The DIE HARD star is seeking damages from Revolution Studios, accusing them of negligence and "ultrahazardous activity," after claiming he was struck in the forehead by a projectile during a shooting scene.

Willis, who played a special operations veteran leading a group of refugees through the Nigerian jungle, claims he has suffered extreme mental, physical and emotional pain and is suffering as a result of the injuries he sustained.

Willis also alleges the personnel hired to inspect the devices used in the stunt failed to "properly and professionally inspect, set-up, place and detonate" them.

His suit also states the injuries, "caused him to employ physicians."
