There’s been an accident on the set of Shooter. Deadline reports a stuntman was recently injured during the production of USA’s new series.
The drama stars Ryan Phillippe as Bob Lee Swagger, an ex-military sniper who returns to action in order to prevent a plot to assassinate the president. The cast also includes Omar Epps and William Fichtner.
Apparently, a stuntman was run over by an SUV while the series was filming a scene at the Aqua Dulce Airport in Santa Clarita, CA. The area’s local newspaper, the Santa Clarita Signal, reported an “adult male was struck by a vehicle and partially trapped underneath it.” Fortunately, the man was rescued and it doesn’t look like the incident will delay production.
Shooter is slated to premiere on July 19th.
