After an on-set stabbing, Anne Hathaway’s movie “The Witches” was put on hold

Filming for Anne Hathaway’s latest project, “The Witches,” was briefly brought to a halt after a crew member was stabbed on set.

According to the Hertfordshire Mercury, police and paramedics were called to the scene of the serious incident at Warner Bros. Studios in Leavesden, England, where filming is underway for the remake of Roald Dahl’s classic 𝘤𝘩𝘪𝘭𝘥ren’s story. The location is also home to the famous “Making of Harry Potter” studio tour.

A spokesperson confirmed to the newspaper that a “knife-related incident” had taken place and that inquiries were ongoing to establish the circumstances.

“One man sustained a neck injury and was taken to hospital by ambulance,” a spokeswoman for the Hertfordshire Constabulary disclosed in a statement.

“A second man was arrested on suspicion of wounding with intent to do grievous bodily harm and is currently in police custody. It is believed the men are known to each other. Enquiries are continuing at this time to establish the circumstances around what happened.”

Oscar-winner Hathaway stars as the Grand High Witch — originally played by Anjelica Huston in the 1990 adaption — in the remake from “Forrest Gump” director Robert Zemeckis.

Dahl’s 1983 fantasy book follows two young boys who fight against a group of 𝘤𝘩𝘪𝘭𝘥ren-eating witches after stumbling upon their convention — even after being turned into mice.

Fellow cast members include Octavia Spencer, Chris Rock, and Stanley Tucci.
