The woman performing the stunt went airborne with her bike crashing through a window inside a studio of the Shaw Tower. Afterward, she was taken to a hospital via an ambulance.

It’s very sad to hear when a stunt goes wrong that ends with a life being taken. Our condolences to her family and friends.

David Leitch and Action

The movie is being helmed by David Leitch, the director of Atomic Blonde starring Charlize Theron and the co-director of John Wick. He comes from a stunt background and understands what it takes to push the boundaries of action. And if you have seen any of his movies, you would, of course, know that the action scenes are very gritty and grounded. Furthermore, to get a sense of the training and intensity of Leitch’s films, take a look at the training video featuring Theron.

Deadpool 2 started filming in June of 2017 in British Columbia, Canada. It is scheduled for release on June 1, 2018.
