'Deadpool 2' Stuntwoman Killed on Set in Motorcycle Crash


She crashed through the glass of a ground-floor studio inside Shaw Tower close by to Jack Poole Plaza.

While the Vancouver Police Department also confirmed the news on Twitter, a representative told HuffPost over the phone that an official press release is forthcoming. The ambulance did not use sirens or lights when leaving the area, possibly indicating that the stunt driver died at the scene.

We are sad to report (via Entertainment Weekly) that a Deadpool 2 stunt person has been tragically killed while shooting on location in Vancouver.

Actress Zazie Beetz, who is best known for her role in the FX television network series Atlanta, was reportedly spotted driving the motorcycle, or one like it, during filming. Ryan Reynolds recently took to Twitter in order to thank them for their help with road closures and managing traffic, while also joking about the name of the movie that they are now filming.
