Deadpool 2 Stunt Driver Dies on Set!

Deadpool 2 Stunt Driver Dies on Set!

This was reportedly her first movie as a stunt performer.

RYAN Reynolds has mourned the loss of a stuntwoman who lost her life on the set of "Deadpool 2" while filming a stunt on a motorcycle.

UPDATE 8:22 PM ET: Deadline reports the victim has been identified as Joi "SJ" Harris, who according to her website was the first African-American woman to compete as a professional road racer in AMA-sanctioned events. I want to show them that there's more for them to be exposed to.

Harris, who began riding in 2009, was featured in a 2015 profile in Black Girls Ride magazine.

Anya Taylor-Joy Re-teams With "Witch" Director For "Nosferatu"
Robert's remake, which will be produced by director Chris Columbus and his daughter Eleanor, will not be the first. The Witch director Robert Eggers is looking to reteam with Anya Taylor-Joy for his upcoming Nosferatu remake.

Witnesses told how the stunt woman appeared to "lose control" of the bike before driving off set at the Jack Poole Plaza earlier today. In the comics, time traveling is an integral part of the mutant's backstory and character but knowing how limited the two-hour-or-so run of a film is, fans worry that Deadpool 2 might have to tweak a few things about Cable to keep its story coherent. ("I'm) not quite scared, but it crosses my mind at times, but a racer can't let it stop us". The stunt driver was playing the role of Zazie Beetz's Domino character. I never met her, but I know she was a friend, a sister, a daughter and a mentor.

Harris died when she crashed into a plate-glass window on August 14, after losing control of her motorcycle in a stunt for the forthcoming movie.

Ryan Reynolds, a Vancouver native and the title star of David Leitch's 2018 sequel, expressed his condolences in a heartfelt statement, stating that Joi's passing had left him "heartbroken, shocked and devastated." In the meantime, though, it looks like everything is back on track in terms of production and Deadpool 2 will continue shooting in Vancouver ahead of its release next year.
