The production which was put on hold on Monday, resumed Tuesday, a day after the incident happened at Warner Bros. Studios Leavesden, near London. According to Variety, the stuntman, Joe Watts, was working on a second unit when he sustained head injuries in a fall. He has been placed in an induced coma after having been taken to a London hospital in an air ambulance. Watts was not Vin Diesel’s stunt double, as was reported by some British tabloids. In a since-deleted social media post, his girlfriend said Monday night that he had suffered a serious head injury but was in a stable condition. Main-unit filming resumed Tuesday, but the second unit remained closed. Universal and Warner Bros. declined to comment. Reports say a probe into what happened is underway. “HSE is investigating the incident following attendance at the scene yesterday,” a spokesman told Variety. “Fast & Furious 9” is will star Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Chris Bridges, Nathalie Emmanuel, John Cena, Helen Mirren, and Charlize Theron. It opens May, 2020. Leavesden was the base for the Harry Potter movies and is now home to the popular Harry Potter studio tour.
