LOS ANGELES (AP) — The parents of a stuntman killed while working on the film "The Expendables 2" has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the filmmakers.

Kun Liu was killed during a stunt in Bulgaria in October 2011. His parents' case filed Thursday in Los Angeles claims the film's producers were negligent.

Zong Yu Liu and Yan Mei Bai are seeking unspecified damages of more than $25,000 against Millennium Films and the movie's stunt coordinator, Chad Stahelski.

Kun Liu was performing a stunt in a rubber boat on Oct. 27, 2011, when he was seriously injured by a nearby explosion and later died. The scene was being filmed on Ognyanovo dam, just outside the Bulgarian capital, Sofia.

Stahelski declined to comment, and Millennium Films did not have an immediate comment on the case.
