Movie clash with Carradine left Schneider battered and bruised
Carradine plays a martial arts expert hired to toughen up Schneider's character in Big Stan, the film funnyman's directorial debut.
Schneider insisted on shooting his own stunts - and ended up with broken bones and agonising muscle tears.
He tells Starpulse.com, "I did my own stunts the whole movie. I tore my rotator cuff, I broke my ankle and David Carradine broke my finger."
A strict fitness and diet regime to help him get in shape - combined with a scorching California heatwave during the shoot - also left Schneider with food poisoning.
He adds, "I would get to (the set) and it was 120 degrees it was like a vacation. What happened was the refrigerators on the trucks couldn't keep the food cold enough so it poisoned me. I had five eggs a day, that's what Bruce Lee ate... then I get f**king sick."
