New Orleans - A crew member working on the film G.I. Joe 2: Retaliation has been killed on the set in New Orleans in what the studio is calling an unusual accident.

Paramount Pictures spokesperson Virginia Lam said on Wednesday that Mike Huber was killed on Tuesday. She would not comment to The Associated Press on the circumstances surrounding his death.

Police Department spokesperson Remi Braden says the accident occurred on property owned by NASA, so the federal government is heading the investigation. A spokesperson for NASA did not immediately return a telephone call for comment.

Lam says the studio is fully cooperating with the investigation.

The sequel stars Bruce Willis, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Channing Tatum. The action movie is scheduled for release in June 2012.
