The cinematographer, Jan de Bont had his scalp lifted by a lion resulting in 220 stitches.
From the start of the film, when Hank, along with an indigenous African friend and associate named Mativo (Kyalo Mativo), is puttering around the compound, the dangers that the animals present—even to the ostensibly experienced scientist—are apparent.

(Drafthouse Films/Olive Films via AP), This photo provided by Drafthouse Films and Olive Films shows a scene from the film, Roar," filmed with 132 lions, tigers, leopards, cougars and jaguars. During the production, the Shambala Preserve set, located in rustic Soledad Canyon 50 miles north of Los Angeles, was destroyed by two wild fires and one flood. Little did they know that the filming of this movie would turn into one of the most notorious misadventures in the film industry ever. That encounter required 56 stitches. A film about a wildlife preservationist whose family came to visit him only to be met with his co-habitats, his vast collection of wild animals, which unfortunately attacked the film crew and actors who had to work alongside with, leaving over 70 of them injured on set   including cinematographer Jan de Bont , who had his scalp lifted by a lion, resulting in 220 stitches. Subsequently, injuries became part of the every-day life for crew and cast members. All our high falutin’ technology has done a lot to enhance the filmgoing experience, don’t get me wrong, but it has desensitised to the point that we expect danger at every turn. “A fascinating and lovable mess.”, Online: http://drafthousefilms.com/film/roar, Follow AP Film Writer Lindsey Bahr on Twitter: www.twitter.com/ldbahr, Get Morning Report and other email newsletters. Griffith also needed stitches to her face and plastic surgery around her eye. For the purposes of the movie, Hedren and Marshall first sought help from animal trainers but nobody would simply rent them thirty or forty lions, as the original script required.
She also suffered fractures and skin grafts after being thrown by an elephant. The little-seen 1981 animal adventure film, "Roar," starring Hedren and Griffith, with 150 wild lions, tigers, leopards, jaguars and elephants, is releasing from Drafthouse Films and Olive Films for the first time in the U.S. in select theaters Friday, April 17, 2015. Hedren got a fractured leg and also had scalp wounds after an elephant had her kicked off its back while she was riding it. Nowadays, there’s so much regulation, if you’re working on a film and two people get injured, they come in and they shut you down.”, Hedren (right) with daughter Melanie Griffith at the 2014 Bel Air Film Festival at the Saban Theatre in Beverly Hills. LOS ANGELES (AP) — “No animals were harmed during the making of ‘Roar.’ But 70 members of the cast and crew were.” So claims a trailer for the theatrical re-release of a little-seen 1981 adventure film starring Tippi Hedren, daughter Melanie Griffith and 150 lions, tigers, leopards, jaguars and elephants. Years past schedule and millions over budget, Hollywood eventually lost interest in “Roar” and the film was never released in North America. “Roar” reminds me of such fervently political films as King Vidor’s “The Fountainhead” and Mikhail Kalatozov’s “I Am Cuba,” which also overheat with the narrow fury of their advocacy; “Roar” is similarly heavy with the hectic energy of ideology—yet, unlike those movies, it’s chaotically, incoherently so, overflowing with loose ends that lead back to the production itself. With film festivals closing down and the entire industry at risk, the obscurity of the undiscovered grows ever deeper. “It was a very traumatic bite. While the exact number of on-set injuries remains a point of contention, the “Roar” shoot was an OSHA nightmare. During the shooting, almost every scene involving lions was improvised and shot with several different cameras. Despite espousing this philosophy, this is something that Noel Marshall didn’t quite understand. That family consisted of his wife Tippi Hedren, his two sons and Hedren’s daughter Melanie Griffith. Watching the movie for the first time, I felt exactly as I did the first time I saw real blood in a news photo, at the age of eight (of the boxer Henry Cooper, who’d just lost a bout to Muhammad Ali): the viewing itself seemed to leave the screen and penetrate my very skin. Starring Tippi Hedren in the main role, the film featured other family members as well: Marshall himself, his real-life sons, John and Jerry, and Hedren’s real-life daughter, Melanie Griffith. Much of the footage capturing some really painful attacks by the wild animals got featured in the final cut. She was also bitten in the neck by a lion and required 38 stitches. Marshal was attacked several times himself. He immediately went in search of the rights holder and reached a deal with Olive Films to co-release the film. He never wanted to lose a take. Later in the same sequence, you can see what clearly is not stage blood pouring from his hands. Dozens of other lions, tigers, and even some African elephants were housed in the ranch as well. These animals are so fast, and if they decide to go after you, nothing but a bullet to the brain will stop them.” She had not made any remarks once the film was released for the first time in the United States in 2015.
The lions had eventually inspired them with an idea about a movie, and Marshall would start working on the script as soon as they returned home from Africa. At one point, a flood also occurred on the ranch, destroying the movie sets and killing three of the lions. His brother was bitten in the foot, and assistant director Doron Kauper had his throat bitten open, as well suffered from other injuries on the head, chest, and thigh. We should never have taken those risks. They were disappointed but were also advised to start keeping and training an exotic beast on their own, therefore, they started to raise a lion cub and learn from its behavior.
