A crew member on the Motley Crue biopic The Dirt was electrocuted on the film’s New Orleans set Saturday (March 10), a rep for the film confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter.
The person, who has not been named, is a member of the off-set rigging crew and was de-rigging a set. The man is expected to recover, and is currently in the hospital.
“Even though all of our safety protocols were in place, an accident did occur and a crew member was injured by electricity,” the rep said.
The film is an adaptation of the book of the same name about the iconic glam metal band, and has been in the works since 2003. It was previously put up at Paramount and Focus Features before Netflix took hold of it last year.
Bad Grandpa helmer Jeff Tremaine is directing, and Game of Thrones actor Iwan Rheon and The Punisher‘s Daniel Webber star as guitarist Mick Mars and frontman Vince Neil, respectively. Douglas Booth will play Nikki Sixx, and Machine Gun Kelly has been tapped to play drummer Tommy Lee.
Julie Yorn, Erik Olsen and Allen Kovac are producing. Chris Nilsson, Steven Kline and Rick Yorn are executive producing. The bandmembers are co-producers on the film as well.
