A lawsuit brought by a stuntman pinned beneath an SUV driven by Tom Sizemore during a TV production has been settled.
A notice of settlement was filed March 29 on the suit, which named Paramount Pictures and Sizemore. The parties must appear in court in July to finalize it. Terms were not disclosed.
Stuntman Steve de Castro alleged Sizemore was intoxicated during filming for the USA Network show Shooter when the incident occurred. The filming was done at Agua Dulce Airport north of Los Angeles in July 2016. A state given to workplace safety agency Cal/OSHA indicated Sizemore was only supposed to be sitting in an unmoving SUV during the scene, but allegedly improvised and unexpectedly drove away, causing de Castro to be injured.
De Castro was subsequently airlifted from the set. He claimed he sustained broken bones and other injuries that hamper his ability to find work.
Attorneys for the defendants had no immediate comment.
Sizemore was fired from the show before the suit was filed.
