An accident happened on the set of Kevin Hart and Mark Wahlberg's new Netflix comedy feature Me Time on Tuesday morning, leaving one of the crew members injured. LAFD spokesperson Brian Murphy tells Deadline first responders answered a call regarding a "long fall" that happened at Sunset Gower Studios in Los Angeles, California, at 7:04 a.m.
The injured person was taken in an ambulance to a regional trauma center. Murphy didn't share if the accident happened inside or around the studios, but sources revealed that the incident occurred at Stage 12 on the lot. The person, who is believed to be a male stage technician in his 30s, fell from the grid approximately 30 feet above the stage. His condition remains unknown.
The stage is reportedly the temporary home of the feature film Me Time, which follows a stay-at-home dad (played by Hart) who suddenly lands himself from "me time" when his wife and kids go away for a trip. Wahlberg joins the comedian in the film, playing his old best friend who he reconnects with for a crazy weekend out that threatens to turn his life inside out.
Cal/OSHA, the Division Of Occupational Safety & Health, and IATSE are allegedly looking into the situation after being notified by Deadline of the accident. Netflix declined to give a comment to the outlet on the situation.
Outside of his recent work with the streamer, Wahlberg recently released his latest work Joe Bell on July 23. The movie tells the story of a man whose son Jadin Bell (Reid Miller) was bullied for identifying as gay, and takes it upon himself to march across the country bringing awareness to the plight his son and many others were facing."There's nothing more heartbreaking than somebody who's being bullied or picked on or not accepted for who they are. And that's gotta start in the home, I think," he told Entertainment Tonight. "Making sure that you are talking to your kids, communicating with them, and first and foremost, they understand that you love them unconditionally, you cheer for them and support them for being who they are, but they have to be able to communicate."
