Accident Kills "Dark Knight" Crew Member

9/25/2007 1:02 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A special effects technician was killed Monday in an accident during London production of the latest Batman film "The Dark Knight."

Warner Bros. said the unidentified crew member died when a truck carrying a camera platform crashed into a tree while following a stunt vehicle. Filming on the movie was not taking place at the time, and no actors were involved in the accident.

The studio issued a statement saying the producers, cast and crew "are deeply saddened by this tragedy and their hearts and prayers go out to the family and loved ones of the deceased."

I think news like this one that shouldn't be annouced is announced only for the sole purpose to add more intrest to the film. Remember when Brandon Lee died during the making of the crow? I only think that movie made money only because he died while filming it. They exploited his death all over the media and everybody wanted to see the film. ......To tell you the truth, The Crow wasn't all that its cracked up to be.
Lets hope the people at warner bros just let this be. R.I P.

Well, I have a really good friend (possibly two) that is part of the camera crew on this movie - so I'm scared to death until I know he is safe - and I'm devastated for the family of the crew member that died. The lives of the crew are just as valuable as the actors, shame on you Shawna for your comment.

Let's face it - this is not news. This is publicity. They don't even name the poor soul that died.

To #9...its called "sarcasm", look it up. It isnt all about the actors. Its about the tragic accident that took a life.
