During a motorcycle stunt on the set of "Deadpool 2," stuntwoman Joi "SJ" Harris passed away. The movie was filming up in Vancouver when the accident occurred. Harris was acting as a stunt double for Domino and was reportedly not wearing a helmet when the accident happened. Ryan Reynolds took to Twitter to offer his condolences. You can see his message in the tweet below.

Josh Brolin also offered condolences via an Instagram post.

20th Century Fox offered their condolences with the following statement:

"We are deeply saddened by the accident that occurred on the set of "Deadpool 2" this morning.

Our hearts and prayers are with the family, friends and colleagues of our crew member during this difficult time."


There will be an investigation conducted by British Columbian Law Enforcement as well as the Coroner’s Service and WorkSafeBC. From there, they will determine what caused the accident. This is the second accident involving a stunt person on set recently. In July, a stuntman from "The Walking Dead" died from a head injury he sustained during a fall.

Right now, there's no indication of how long the investigation will take. It's in everyone's best interest, though, for the authorities to take their time and get to the bottom of what happened during the accident. The authorities announced that more information will be released as it becomes available.

What does this mean for the film?

With Production being halted, it's hard to tell what exactly this means. Will the film be pushed back in order to give them the time they need to complete the film? There's no indication of that yet. However, it's highly unlikely that the date will move. While we don't know how long production is halted for, the release date is still quite far away.

It was just last week that images and video were released for "Deadpool 2" of various stunts. The stunts were performed by stand-ins for Josh Brolin, who is playing Cable, and Beetz, who is playing Domino.

A local reporter for CTV News posted images earlier today of a memorial for SJ Harris.

With two deaths of Hollywood stunt people happening so close together, the industry is surely feeling their losses, too.

Hopefully production can continue soon on the film, but the most important thing right now is for authorities to find out what happened, and for them to get to the bottom of what caused the accident.

Right now, "Deadpool 2" is slated for a June 1, 2018 release.
