“Spider-Man” on-set accident strands three works six stories off the ground

Hollywoodnews.com: It sounds like a scene out of a “Spider-Man” movie. In a way, it was.
A accident on the set of Marc Webb’s “The Amazing Spider-Man” left three workers trapped for hours.
The production grips were stranded on a crane six stories off of the ground when the piece of equipment “suddenly stopped functioning,” according to the NY Post. The paper adds that the grips “were trying to build a platform for a camera on the roof of a building at Market and Madison streets in Chinatown around 11:15 a.m. when the malfunction occurred.”
No sooner did the news break and the trades already were making a connection between technical difficulties on the “Spider-Man” Broadway musical and this ongoing film production. A stretch, of course, but it’s still entertaining to picture Hollywood producers pulling ANYTHING tied to the Web-slinger out of his native New York City, because it kind of sounds like a little bit of bad luck.
