Crew member dies on New Orleans set of G.I. Joe: Retaliation film

A crew member has died on the New Orleans set of upcoming action film G.I. Joe: Retaliation. The unidentified male set worker was taking down part of the set when a high-powered crane allegedly fell over.

The circumstances of the accident are now being investigated and Paramount Pictures have confirmed that they are cooperating with that investigation. It’s not clear exactly how the man was killed.

G.I. Joe: Retaliation is a sequel to 2009’s hit G.I. Joe film. The sequel stars Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, Channing Tatum and Bruce Willis, and is expected to be released in June next year.
