Netflix’s The Chosen One Suspends Production After Two Actors Die In Car Crash
Following the accident that killed two actors and injured six others from the Netflix series The Chosen One, production on the series has now been temporarily halted.
According to Deadline, the company running the shoot named Redrum has suspended production on the Netflix series without further information on its future. While more details are awaited, Netflix has yet to comment on the accident.
The accident happened while the victims were traveling to the local airport on June 16. However, the injured cast members are in stable condition.
Crew members were riding in a van when it crashed and rolled over in an accident near the set of Netflix series The Chosen One, Deadline reported.
Two actors died in the crash and six other crew members were injured, authorities said. The victims were not initially identified. The Baja California Department of Culture later said Raymundo Garduno Cruz and Juan Francisco Gonzalez Aguilar were those who died.
The accident happened on a desert road near Mulege on the Baja California Sur peninsula while the team was filming in nearby Santa Rosalia.
A Netflix description for The Chosen One reads: “A 12-year-old boy learns that he is the return of Jesus Christ, destined to save mankind. It is based on the comic book series by Mark Millar and Peter Gross.”
The Chosen One – based on Millar’s American Jesus – is among a wave of titles that Netflix is adapting from Millarworld, a comic book publishing house it owns.
