A Guy Died On A Martin Scorsese Movie Yesterday

Martin Scorsese


This is not the best week to be on a movie set obviously.

“Today there was an unfortunate accident at CMPC Studios in Taiwan, where the Martin Scorsese film, Silence, is in pre-production. An existing structure on the CMPC backlot had been deemed unsafe by the production, and accordingly a 3rd-party contractor was hired to reinforce and make it safe prior to any production-related work commencing in this building. Sadly, during this process, the ceiling collapsed, resulting in the death of one of the contractor’s employees and injuries to two others. Everyone is in shock and sorrow and expresses their deepest concern and sympathy to the families of the individual who died and those who were injured.”

This movie still hasn’t killed more people than Chris Kyle, so it’s going to be a while before it’s labeled a hero. Give it time, my friends. Also, you might want to skip visiting a movie set this week.
