Paramount Pictures

Mike Huber, a crew member working on G.I. Joe 2: Retaliation, died yesterday on set while working on the film in New Orleans.

"Our thoughts and deepest condolences are with the Huber family at this time," Virginia Lam, spokesperson for Paramount Pictures, said in a statement to ET. "The safety of our cast and crew is our top priority and the studio is fully cooperating with all investigating agencies as they examine the circumstances surrounding this unusual accident."

The death comes less than a month after a stuntman was killed on the set of Expendables 2.
