Letitia Wright Hospitalised After ‘Black Panther’ Stunt Accident
Letitia Wright was taken to hospital on Wednesday following an accident on the set of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.
The 27-year-old actress had been performing a stunt during a night shoot in Boston when she sustained “minor injuries”. Principle photography is taking place in Atlanta and the accident is not expected to affect the shooting schedule for the film.
“Letitia Wright sustained minor injuries today while filming a stunt for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.” A Marvel spokesperson told Deadline that “she is currently receiving care in a local hospital and is expected to be release soon.”
Wright is reprising her role as Shuri in the new Black Panther installment. Joining her are fellow castmates Danai Gurira, Daniel Kaluuya, Winston Duke, Lupita Nyong’o, Florence Kasumba and Angela Bassett. Ryan Coogler will direct.
Wright is also due to appear in the next on-screen adaptation of Agatha Christie’s Death On The Nile. The film is a continuation of 2017’s Murder On The Orient Express, and will see Kenneth Branagh return as Poirot.
She will also feature in Frank Berry’s Aisha and Anthony Mandler’s Surrounded.
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is scheduled for release on July 8, 2022.
