A crew member of a Netflix film starring Chris Pratt died Friday in an alleged car accident in Georgia, where the film is being set.
The film, titled The Electric State, stars Pratt, Millie Bobby Brown and Stanley Tucci and is directed by celebrity Marvel masterminds Joe and Anthony Russo.
A source told Deadline: “Production was paused today and the cast and crew have been offered consulting resources.
The death of the unidentified crew member reportedly happened “after hours”.
Millie Bobby Brown hits the beach while filming a scene for her new movie Electric State. The 18-year-old British actress was seen in a white T-shirt as she walked the sands during filming in Acworth, Georgia.

Pratt and Brown were spotted on the set of the film by DailyMail.com cameras in Georgia last Wednesday, with the ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ star unrecognizable as he wore a wig and mustache.
The film is based on the graphic novel of the same name by Swedish author Simon Stålenhag.
It comes just days after the first anniversary of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins’ accidental death at the hands of Alec Baldwin on the set of his film Rust after he pointed a “prop gun” at her, which then went off, hitting the 42-year-old woman and mother from one in the chest and kills her.
Official investigations were launched by authorities, while cast and crew members involved in the project became embroiled in a bitter game of blame, pointing fingers at each other and making accusations about the overall safety of the set while the world watched and The Family of Hutchins mourned.
Brown plays an orphaned teenager who uses a robot (Jason Alexander) to search for her brother in Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely’s 2017 theatrical adaptation of Stålenhag’s graphic novel.
Filmmaker siblings Joe and Anthony Russo are directing The Electric State, which felt familiar to the Spanish-born, Florida-raised Brit after working with twins Matt and Ross Duffer on Netflix’s Stranger Things.
“It’s so funny, now I’ve worked with two brothers,” Millie said Tuesday in her Netflix Queue digital cover story.
“They’re actually pretty similar. You say yes to everything, and you’re a bit stricter. It’s a really good balance.’
“Eleven in Stranger Things is so much beyond me, while Enola feels like returning to a place of normality and permanence,” explained the SAG Award winner.

“I’m able to create her character really organically. . . Of course there are times when [director] Harry Bradbeer comes up to me and says, “Well, is that Millie or Enola?” And I say, “That’s Millie, let’s do it again!”
In the magazine, Millie vented about how “young women get brought down for a lot of different things.”
“If it’s our maturity, if it’s the way we dress, if it’s the things we say, if it’s the choices we make, we’ll never be enough,” Brown lamented.
“It’s up to us to find camaraderie and sisterhood in that. And stand together and say, “We are enough.” We have to stick together and break these stereotypes and standards.’
