“Deadpool 2” To Resume Production Today
Despite a report yesterday indicating the film has been indefinitely delayed, Deadline reports that production on the “Deadpool” sequel will reportedly resume this morning.
That’s just two days after the tragic motorcycle accident in which stunt woman Joi ‘SJ’ Harris was killed on the Vancouver set.
Brought on only last Wednesday to the already filming sequel, the first African-American female professional road racer was doing her first film as a stunt performer – in this case standing in for the Domino character.
The site says Harris was not wearing a helmet when the tragedy occurred. One had been designed for the previous stunt double and would’ve gone under the character’s wig, but because of the short notice, Harris did not have time to get such a helmet made for her.
Both The Vancouver Police Department and WorkSafeBC are investigating the incident.
