Reports say the small twin-engine plane went down with 2 American pilots and a Colombian citizen on board. It has been used during production to transport crew members.We do know Cruise was NOT on board. He had wrapped filming earlier in the day. There are reports the plane went down in bad weather near Medellin.
Filming started in May in Georgia and the actor arrived in Medellin just last month on August 20 to scout for locations. It’s due for release in January 2017.
