The incident thus occupies an illustrious place in the list of fatal accidents on a film set.

The Crow

: also a deadly shot

Almost thirty years ago, actor Brandon Lee was struck by a fatal gunshot.

The son of karate star Bruce Lee, stars in

The Crow

(1993), a film in which he plays a deceased rock star who rises from his grave to exact revenge on his killers.

A gun is used while shooting the scene where Lee's character is killed.

Similar to the incident on the set of


, a weapon is used that normally release blanks (cartridges without bullets).

Unexpectedly, there is still a real bullet in the weapon, which has been placed in it to record a close-up scene.

The crew forgot to remove the real bullet causing Lee to be hit in the stomach while shooting the scene.

A six-hour operation is to no avail: the then 28-year-old actor dies from the consequences of the injury.

Despite the fatal accident,

the film

The Crow

is released.

Michael Massee, the actor who fired the fatal shot, never wanted to watch the film and later said he still had nightmares about the accident.

Midnight Rider

: director ends up in jail

The film

Midnight Rider

with William Hurt, among others, was never released.

The reason for this is that a fatal accident takes place on the first day of shooting in 2014.

The crew is on a bridge preparing the area for shooting when a train unexpectedly arrives.

That is fatal to camerawoman Sarah Jones and seven other members of the crew are seriously injured.

Several responsible members of the production team, including director Randall Miller, are being charged with negligence and unpremeditated murder.

Miller pleads guilty and is sentenced to ten years in prison, of which he eventually serves one.

The director passes his probation period and is therefore free again.

After a long absence, he will soon be making his return to the film world with the comedy

Coffee Wars.
