TWO actors have been killed and six other crew members have been injured after a van carrying crew from new Netflix series The Chosen One was involved in a turn-over crash.
The vehicle crashed and flipped on Thursday while traveling on a desert road near Mulege in Mexico, on the Baja California Sur peninsula, officials said.
Raymundo Garduno Cruz and Juan Francisco Gonzalez Aguilar died in the accident, the Baja California Department of Culture in Mexico told the Associated Press.
The other victims have not yet been officially identified.
The cast and crew were filming the Netflix series in nearby Santa Rosalia along the Gulf of California.
The Chosen One is an upcoming series about a 12-year-old boy who learns he’s the returned Jesus Christ and is destined to save humankind.
The show is based on the comic book series American Jesus by Mark Millar and Peter Gross.
According to casting calls, an independent film company had been filming the series.
Filming reportedly began on the series in April.
