Looks like the set of The Princess Diaries star Anne Hathaway's new film is not the safest place to be.

A male victim, who was reportedly a crew member, was taken to the hospital after being stabbed on the set of The Witches.  Apparently, the accident occurred during a confrontation with a co-worker.

UK police said the stabbing took place at one of Warner Bros. Studios' stages in Hertfordshire, England, revealed The Hollywood Reporter.


Hathaway's whereabouts at the time were not reported and it is unclear if she or any of the other actors witnessed the stabbing or not.

A spokesperson for Warner Bros. confirmed to the Hertfordshire Mercury  that a "knife-related incident" had taken place on site. "I can confirm that there was an isolated workplace incident at the Warner Bros. studio production facility and the police are now handling the matter," he said.

Police also confirmed that the man has been arrested on suspicion of wounding with intent to do grievous bodily harm and that enquiries are continuing to establish the circumstances of the irksome situation.


"I heard the argument, but couldn't make out what they were saying. They were shouting," a source told The Sun. "As I left the studio and got round the corner, studio security went flying round with flashing lights. When I asked my pal what was going on, he said after I left one got stabbed in the neck with a flip knife, like a work one, from his tool belt."

Hathaway is playing the Grand High Witch in Robert Zemeckis' remake of the 1990 movie The Witches, which was based on late author Roald Dahl's 1983 children's book of the same name.
