With only a couple weeks of filming left, production on Netflix’s “Don’t Look Up” reportedly hit a snag early Friday morning when star Jennifer Lawrence suffered an injury while filming.

According to The Boston Globe, the incident occurred during overnight filming in Brockton, with a trash can flying through a window before Lawrence cleared the filming area. According to Page Six, fragments of glass hit Lawrence in the eye during the stunt.

Lawrence was then seen holding her face before a medic arrived, with production halting around 1:40 a.m. and canceled for the rest of Friday, according to the Globe.


Lawrence, who plays an astronomer trying to warn the world about an asteroid coming to destroy Earth, is expected to be OK, per Page Six.

A representative for the production did not respond to a request for comment at the time of this article’s publication.

Crews have been busy this week, filming in multiple locations in Framingham on Wednesday and heading to Brockton on Thursday evening, where Lawrence and Timothee Chalamet (“Little Women”) shot a scene standing on top of an old D’Angelo Grilled Sandwiches shop.

In addition to the above listed towns, “Don’t Look Up” has also filmed in Boston, Canton, Chicopee, Fall River, Norton, Salisbury, Westborough, Weymouth, and Worcester.

“Don’t Look Up” will debut on Netflix later this year, though an exact release date has not been announced.
