Two pilots along with the crew members were in the small twin-engine aircraft when it came down due to bad weather near Medellin.

“An aircraft carrying crew members crashed while returning to Enrique Olaya Herrera Airport in Medellin following production wrap on the film Mena resulting in two fatalities,” a spokesperson for Mena’s distributor Universal Pictures said.

The plane was being used to transport crew members between the shooting location and the local airport. According to a source close to the production, neither the 53-year-old actor nor the film’s director Doug Liman was on the plane.
