The family of a stuntman who was killed during an explosion on the set of "​The Expendables 2" is suing producers ... claiming they failed to take proper safety precautions during a stunt-gone-wrong in Bulgaria.

According to the lawsuit, Kun Liu was shooting an action scene that took place on a rubber boat near the Ognyanovo Reservoir on October 27, 2011. The scene involved the use of high powered explosives and other "ultra-hazardous activities."

But something went horribly wrong ... and according to the suit, 26-year-old Liu was killed during the filming of the scene.

Liu's parents blame the production company, Millennium Films, and the stunt coordinator, Chad Stahelski ... and now they're suing both parties for wrongful death.

Liu's family believes they should be compensated for funeral expenses ... and for the loss of their son's "society, love, comfort, attention, services and support."

Liu's family is demanding more than $25k.

Offer them 10 times that much. They'll feel a little better and you'll have so much PR you might make budget on this lame sequel.


As an aside: It's really distracting to fill a film up with over-the-hill actors. It becomes too "choppy".

They didn't name it Expendables for nothing. You play the game, you take your chances.

The guy DIED and the family is asking for a dollar amount in the $25k neighborhood? Or was that figure listed due to lack of concrete info? Could be $2m?

You'd think the least they would do is cover the funeral costs without being sued. 25K is nothing, compensate the family.

I'm sure he signed some sort of waiver if the guy is a stuntman. Isn't that one of the risks of being a stuntman? Possibility of serious injuries or even death?

$25k?F it,give it to them...I am sure legally they are not responsible but I respect the fact they are simply asking for the cost of funeral,etc...not 766 million trillion dollars if it was an American lawyer sniffing around
