Jason Statham, one of the film’s stars after a serious accident on the set of Fast and Furious 9, which caused a stunt to fall into a coma, expressed his feelings about the stuntmen. Statham conveyed his best wishes to the injured stunt and his family and said that the stuntmen do not receive the respect they deserve.
Jason Statham made a statement after the dreadful accident of the Fast and Furious 9 shooting. Statham, who believes that professional stunting is a profession that is not respected enough and deserves more respect, is always in close communication with the stuntmen and understands and stands by the injured stunt and his family.
Statham said in a statement, “It’s terrible. You can’t predict what will happen. You take all the precautions to avoid such things, but it’s really embarrassing that things happen anyway. It’s really a shame for someone to get seriously injured. It’s a bad situation for families. There have been stunts and I have been with them throughout my career. ”
Although we see names like Tom Cruise and Jason Statham shooting their own action scenes themselves, there are scenes that players can’t perform for some reason. This is where professional stuntmen come in. When shooting action-packed scenes, the stuntmen in the scene do not try their best to be different from the player.
Earlier this week, stunt Joe Watts had fallen out of filming Fast and Furious. Watts was seriously injured in the head and fell into a coma.
Since players often use a single stunt during their acting career, there is a real bond between the player and the stuntman. In addition, the stunts do not receive as much money as the players they imitate on the screen. In addition, the number of stunt winners is very small. Oscars have been offered to the stuntmen many times, but the Academy refused to recognize the stuntmen.
Although the security issue is always the most important point in film shooting, accidents can happen. In addition to this accident, there are even stuntmen who lost their limbs and even died during filming. Actors in the film industry hope to give more attention to stunts.
