Halle Berry has broken her foot while in the middle of shooting her new movie Cloud Atlas in Spain.

The Oscar-winning actress was taking a break from filming the drama when she suffered the injury, and was pictured being escorted out of a Spanish hospital in a wheelchair, with her right leg in a cast.

Warner Brother said in a statement: "Halle Berry suffered a foot injury today while walking in Mallorca on a day off from filming Cloud Atlas.

"Production has adjusted their schedule and will continue filming."

The 44-year-old star had previously been spotted enjoying Mallorca with her three-year-old daughter, Nahla, and boyfriend Olivier Martinez.

Halle had recently finished shooting the film on location in Glasgow.

Most of the filming is taking place in Germany but producers said they had chosen Glasgow because of the "support and encouragement" offered by the city, as well as its Victorian-era grid street system and architecture.

Cloud Atlas is based on British author David Mitchell's best-selling 2004 novel, which was shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize.

The unconventionally-structured tale of interlinking narratives charts the story of one soul across the centuries.

The film also features Tom Hanks and British actors Hugh Grant, Jim Broadbent, Jim Sturgess and The Hour's Ben Whishaw.
