The producers of the Tom Cruise movie, Mena, are being sued for wrongful death according to The Hollywood Reporter. In September of 2015, two crew members working on the film were killed in a small aircraft accident in the Columbian mountains.
The crew members were working in a remote area of Columbia, flying over treacherous terrain. The movie’s producers hired a Columbian pilot who was allegedly unqualified to operate the small aircraft in such dangerous conditions.
Movie productions have strict rules concerning who may or may not work on what has been described as a “closed set.” If the production companies cut corners and hired an unqualified pilot to ferry members of its crew to the remote location then it is likely that they are responsible for the wrongful death of its crew.
