Construction Worker Killed in Accident on ‘Blade Runner’ Set


A construction worker has been killed on the set of the “Blade Runner” sequel in Hungary, the film’s production company Alcon Entertainment confirmed to Mashable on Thursday.

According to the website, a piece of the set from the highly anticipated follow-up to Ridley Scott’s 1982 sci-fi classic reportedly collapsed on the unnamed victim at Budapest’s Origo Studios.

Production for the film, which began in early July, had already wrapped in Hungary, but crew remained behind to dismantle the sets. The construction worker was apparently positioned beneath a platform when the accident occurred. An investigation into his death is expected because it is not known why the set collapsed. The Huffington Post has reached out to Alcon Entertainment and will update the post accordingly.
