His New Project
I'm spending this Thanksgiving Day shooting a low budget independent film. in Canada. And I couldn't be more grateful!
The film, called The Last Victim, is filming at the Okanagan Indian Band and is described as a "Neo-western". Perlman is playing local lawman Sheriff Hickey.

A Terrifying Situation
Unfortunately, the cast and crew of The Last Victim had quite a scare when an out of control truck ran into a crowd of crew members, injuring one. Perlman was not involved in the accident at all but witnessed the situation, and he is said to be in a state of shock.
TMZ reports that it was a driver error that led to the accident.
"We're told the driver of the truck mistakenly hit the gas instead of the brake and accelerated past where it was supposed to stop ... sending the crew scrambling to safety. Our sources say at least one person was struck and was on the ground being tended to by others until emergency workers arrived."
Back To Set
Thankfully, only one person was injured and only sustained a minor foot injury. No one was admitted to the hospital and WorkSafeBC, a Canadian workplace safety agency, is currently investigating the situation.
Luckily, the situation was dealt with quickly enough for Perlman and other cast members to return to set the same day. Hopefully the rest of The Last Victim's shoot will go off without a hitch!
