Ed Norton’s Production Company Is Being Sued After Death On Set
For Edward Norton and his production company, Cinema Blend has made note that the fire which led up to the loss of a life is now leading into a situation where a lawsuit is heading Norton’s way from the family of the late firefighter.
Eileen Davidson, the wife of 37-year-old Michael Davidson, the father-of-four who died in the New York City landmark where Motherless Brooklynwas being filmed in Harlem, has filed the wrongful death lawsuit against Ed Norton’s production company, Class 5 Films. She is also suing the owner of the building in Harlem.
The Blast obtained and viewed court documents, citing that Davidon’s widow, Eileen, is claiming Class 5 Films and Norton, as well as the building owner, “removed fire safety and prevention safeguards in the building during filming Motherless Brooklyn before the fire which took her husband’s life broke out on set.” She states in her lawsuit that production was allowed in the Harlem building “without making sure it was up to code and safety requirements.” The Blast notes that the estate is seeking “unspecified damages.”
Davidson was a 15 year veteran of the New York Fire Department (FDNY). His death occurred on March 22, 2018. Daniel Nigro, the commissioner of the FDNY, told reporters that Davidson was found unconcious after having descended a stairway with other firefighters and becoming separated from them.
Other deaths and accidents have occurred on sets for various films and other forms of production, mostly being related to action sequences and major blockbuster movies. Most recently, a stunt double, SJ Harris, had a motorcycle accident in the filming process of Deadpool 2, and she died from her injuries. Deadpool 2 was dedicated in memory of SJ.
