The injury prevents the actor from attending the New York Film Festival premiere of "Carnage" Friday evening.

A training accident for Django Unchained is keeping Christoph Waltz from Friday night’s New York premiere of Carnage, the new Roman Polanski movie playing at the New York Film Festival.

Django doesn’t begin production until November but is in the pre-production stage, with members of the cast training for the movie, which is set in the 1800s.

Waltz is playing a German bounty hunter who helps the lead character, being played by Jamie Foxx, scour the American South in search of his wife, who is being kept as a slave on a plantation run by a man named Calvin Candie, played by Leonardo DiCaprio.

Waltz’s camp confirmed the injury, releasing the following statement: "Christoph Waltz was injured while training with his horse in preparation for his role in Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained.

"Waltz is currently being treated for a dislocated pelvic bone and is looking forward to getting back in the saddle.”
