Berry’s new film “revolves around a construction worker who is roped into the spy world by his former high school girlfriend Roxanne, played by Berry, for an intelligence mission,” the outlet writes. The Oscar-winning actress will star opposite Mark Wahlberg in the upcoming movie. 

“Our Man From Jersey” was being filmed in Camberwell Green magistrates court, South East London, when a canister of suspected arms was found, according to the report.

The incident comes seven months after the deadly shooting on the movie set of “Rust’” when the prop gun Alec Baldwin used misfired and shot two people, killing a cinematographer and injuring the film’s director. 

The accident took place in Santa Fe, New Mexico when Baldwin was filming a scene that required someone to fire a prop gun. Thought to be loaded with blanks, the gun’s bullets struck director Joel Souza and cinematographer Halyna Hutchins. Hutchins died from her injuries. Souza was treated at a nearby hospital and later released.
