Film-maker Dustin Lance Black reveals he had ‘serious’ head injury last month
Oscar-winning screenwriter and director Dustin Lance Black has said he suffered a “serious head injury” a month ago, which caused him to stay low for a while.
The “Milk” writer, who was last spotted at public events in July, did not disclose the details of his injury but said the road to recovery will be a long one.
Lance Black took to Instagram on Monday to share a health update with his fans and followers.
“A month ago I sustained a serious head injury that put me out of commission. Showing little improvement, my doctors ordered me to shut off my brain in hopes of it healing.
“This has been a challenging, frightening time for a creative type who depends on what’s in his skull to work, care and love. And now I understand the road back will be long,” he wrote.
