Amidst Eddie Murphy being hard at work on his next movie with Amazon Studios, The Pickup, the project’s set has reportedly just dealt with an accident that led to several injuries to members of the crew. While the studio is still “in the process of gathering facts” in regards to the specific details of the incident at this time, it apparently happened while the production was filming an action sequence. 

News of the incident has come in via a spokesperson for Amazon Studios (per Deadline), which shared the details. Here’s its statement: 

On April 20, an accident occurred on the set of The Pickup during a rehearsed 2nd unit action sequence. Unfortunately, the sequence did not go as planned and several members of the crew were injured as a result. We are still in the process of gathering facts on what happened and why, but first and foremost our thoughts are with those who are recovering. The well-being of the entire crew and cast is our first priority, and we will continue to insist on the highest industry standards of safety while filming. All safety precautions were reviewed prior to and monitored during the shoot.

The Saturday incident took place in Atlanta, Georgia, where the heist film has been shooting. The cast of The Pickup is led by Eddie Murphy, but also stars Pete Davidson, Keke Palmer, Eva Longoria and Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power’s Ismael Cruz Cordova. The movie is being directed by Tim Story, who recently helmed the horror movie, The Blackening, Disney+’s Dashing Through The Snow, the live-action Tom & Jerry movie and the 2019 Shaft film.
