A member of the crew was electrocuted during filming of “The Dirt”, the upcoming biopic about rock band Motley Crue currently filming in New Orleans.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the crew member (who hasn’t been identified) is a member of the off-set rigging crew and was in the midst of de-rigging a set when he was accidentally electrocuted. The unidentified man is currently hospitalized, and is expected to recover.
“Even though all of our safety protocols were in place, an accident did occur and a crew member was injured by electricity,” a rep for the film confirmed.
“The Dirt” is based on the book of the same name, detailing the band’s story, and has reportedly been in the works since 2003.
As THR reports, “The Dirt” is being directed by Jeff Tremaine (“Bad Grandpa”, “Jackass”), with “Game of Thrones” star Iwan Rheon to play guitarist Mick Mars, Daniel Webster (“The Punisher”) playing singer Vince Neil, Douglas Booth as bass player Nikki Sixx and rapper/actor Machine Gun Kelly as drummer Tommy Lee.
