There's been a violent attack on the set of a new Hollywood movie. A crew member on the set of Anne Hathaway‘s "The Witches" was rushed to the hospital after being stabbed, reported PEOPLE.

The incident took place at Warner Bros. Studios in the U.K. on Wednesday, according to the Hertfordshire Mercury. This set is in a well-known area. Next to it is The Making of Harry Potter studio tour.

"The Witches" is an adaption of the classic Ronald Dahl book. It also stars Octavia Spencer and Chris Rock.

“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,” a spokesperson for Warner Bros. told the newspaper in a statement.

The suspected stabber has not been identified. The person is currently in police custody.

“One man sustained a neck injury and was taken to hospital by ambulance,” a spokesperson for the constabulary told the publication. “A second man was arrested on suspicion of wounding with intent to do grievous bodily harm and is currently in police custody.”

It appears that it wasn't a random act. Police say that the parties involved knew each other.

“It is believed the men are known to each other,” the spokesperson continued. “Enquiries are continuing at this time to establish the circumstances around what happened.”

Hathaway is playing the Grand High Witch in the upcoming film. The Witches is set to debut in theaters in October 2020.
