Another tragedy has occurred with the death of Nic Cupac, a crew member in the upcoming Indiana Jones film, who flew out to Morocco to assist with a tricky stunt.
The 54-year-old was discovered dead in his hotel in the Moroccan city of Fes, where he is believed to have died of natural causes.
According to The Sun, the late Cupac was one of 100 team members working on the blockbuster sequel.
‘One of the absolute finest — taught me so much when I was starting out,’ remarked one friend. Another person stated, ‘I’m heartbroken.’ Nic was a wonderful dude.’
The fifth and final Indiana Jones sequel, which was supposed to be released in 2022 but has now been pushed back to 2023, was delayed by three months this year due to star Harrison Ford suffering a shoulder injury.
The untitled film, which will also star Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Mads Mikkelsen, will be released thirteen years after the fourth film.
Recent, actor Alex Baldwin shot dead, a crew member of his upcoming film.
Baldwin was handed what was described as a safe “cold gun” on the set of his movie “Rust”, but the prop gun contained live rounds when it was fired, according to details of the police investigation into the fatal shooting released on Friday.
The shot hit cinematographer Halyna Hutchins in the chest, and director Joel Souza who was behind her, in the shoulder, according to a county sheriff’s affidavit filed in Santa Fe magistrates court.
Hutchins died of her wounds and Souza was injured but has since been released from the hospital.
