Local police reportedly told Web site MoviesOnline.com that the star had fallen to his death on the set of his new movie.
Officials claimed the actor had fallen from the Kauri Cliffs on New Zealand's North Island while shooting a scene for an unnamed project, but the actor's publicist has denied the story.
Lisa Kasteler states, "Reports that Jeff Goldblum has passed away are completely untrue. He is fine and in Los Angeles."
