GEORGIA, USA: In one of the most devastating news coming from the entertainment industry, a crew member from Chris Pratt and Millie Bobby Brown’s upcoming Netflix movie ‘The Electric State’ was killed on Friday, November 4, in an off-set car accident in Georgia, where the film’s shooting is taking place.

According to Deadline, the death of the unidentified crew members took place “after working hours” and the production of the movie had to be stopped as soon as everyone got to know of the crew member’s death. However, the name and details of the crew member haven’t been disclosed yet. The report also stated the other cast and crew members of the movie were offered “counseling resources” after the death of the crew member.

The incident takes place almost four months after the 22-year-old actor Alexander "AJ" Jennings from Netflix’s ‘Outer Banks’ was killed after he was struck by two cars in July 2022 in Charleston, South Carolina. The actor was in Charleston where the Netflix series has been shooting for its third season.

Meanwhile, the tragic incident takes place just a few days after the anniversary of the death of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins. The Ukrainian cinematographer was accidentally shot by actor Alec Baldwin using a prop gun that was not properly checked during production on the set of the film ‘Rust’. Hutchins’ family filed a lawsuit against Baldwin and other crew members of the movie, but the suit was settled for “undisclosed sums.”

As far as the movie is concerned, ‘The Electric State’ is based on the novel of the same name by Simon Stalenhag and follows a runaway teenager and her yellow toy robot traveling west through a strange USA. The official synopsis reads, “The ruins of gigantic battle drones litter the countryside, heaped together with the discarded trash of a high-tech consumerist society in decline. As their car approaches the edge of the continent, the world outside the window seems to be unraveling ever faster—as if somewhere beyond the horizon, the hollow core of civilization has finally caved in.”

Apart from Chris Pratt and Millie Bobby Brown, other actors to feature in the movie include Stanley Tucci, Giancarlo Esposito, Ke Huy Quan, Anthony Mackie, and Billy Bob Thornton.

Directed by the Russo Brother, the movie is reportedly eyeing a 2024 release date.
