Halle Berry has broken her foot while filming Cloud Atlas in Spain. The actress was at the house where she is staying while making the sci-fi movie when she mis-stepped, causing her injury.

Sources told website TMZ she was taken to hospital where he foot was put in a cast. She later left the medical facility in a wheelchair.

The film's directors, Tom Tykwer, Andy Wachowski and Lana Wachowski, are reportedly overcoming the immediate problem of shooting Halle's scenes - in which she plays one of few remaining survivors in a post apocalyptic world - by filming her from the waist up, using a stunt double, or simply shooting other scenes in which she is not required.

Other stars to appear in the big budget adaptation of the novel by David Mitchell include Tom Hanks, Hugh Grant, Jim Sturgess and Hugo Weaving.
