The Edward Scissorhands moviemaker hurt himself during a break from filming new movie Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiars and he was taken to the emergency room at Blackpool Victoria Hospital.

Burton's publicist says, "Tim attended hospital with a minor injury, no breakages."

The incident has not affected the shooting schedule of the film, which is based on the novel Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children and stars Dame Judi Dench and Samuel L. Jackson.
