Ridley Scott has had an accident on the set of Alien: Covenant in Australia, following a collision with a forklift truck.
The Australian Daily Telegraph reports that the injury is minor thankfully. The newspaper states that Scott has injured his wrist, but that it was rather his own fault, as he wasn’t looking where he was going.
A cast-member from the movie spoke on the matter:
“Everyone on set was so worried the guy driving the fork lift was going to cop a spray. But Ridley took it like a man, apologises and said it was his fault and just got on with it.
The cast and crew have been saying how his reaction to the incident says so much about his nature and professionalism. He is now getting around on set with a black cast.”
The film is currently shooting in Sydney and the story will follow “the crew of the colony ship Covenant who discover what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world”
Alien: Covenant hits cinemas on August 4, 2017.
