by  in Movie News Comment

Following the death of stuntwoman Joi “SJ” Harris while filming in Vancouver, British Columbia, on Monday, production on Fox’s Deadpool 2 has been shut down indefinitely.

Harris was doubling for Domino in the fatal sequence, which was set to be her first film stunt. Reports say that she was not wearing a helmet when the crash occurred.

An investigation by British Columbian Law Enforcement as well as the Coroner’s Service and WorkSafeBC will take place to determine what happened to cause the first African-American female pro road racer’s accident.
