‘Lady within the Lake’ manufacturing will increase safety after risk to crew

Baltimore Police say Keith L. Brown, 43, verbally threatened violence in opposition to members of the manufacturing crew, brandished a gun and demanded the crew pay him $50,000 with a purpose to proceed working at a downtown Baltimore location the place they have been filming, in keeping with a police report obtained by CNN.

Detectives decided that Brown “was upset that he had not been compensated by the production for lost business, since he could not operate his clothing business while the crew was filming at that location,” police stated.

Brown, who was arrested Monday on narcotics prices, instructed police that he spoke with a member of the movie crew and a safety supervisor and “was awaiting paper work to receive compensation for lost business on Aug. 26,” in keeping with police.

Safety measures on the restricted collection, an adaptation of Laura Lippman’s novel of the identical title, have been elevated, in keeping with producers.

“The safety and security of our crew, cast and all who work across our productions is our highest priority, and we are thankful no one was injured,” Endeavor Content material, the “Lady in the Lake” manufacturing firm, stated in an announcement to CNN on Monday. “Production will resume with increased security measures going forward.”

“Lady in the Lake” stars Natalie Portman and Moses Ingram.
