Several productions filming in the Louisiana area have shut down to escape the wrath of Hurricane Ida.
Disney Channel’s upcoming coming-of-age superhero series Ultraviolet & Black Scorpion has suspended filming and its crews and talent are said to be safe.
The upcoming Netflix film, We Have a Ghost, starring Anthony Mackie, David Harbour, pre-emptively moved its cast and crew out of harm’s way.
The NBC/Blumhouse limited series The Thing About Pam, starring Renee Zellweger and Josh Duhamel, shut down pre-production until the storm passes.
The OWN production Cherish the Day likewise suspended filming. Writer-producer Ava DuVernay tweeted Monday some concern for her crew. “No power,” she wrote. “Sewage out. No water. Nearly 1 million structures in Louisiana affected. It’s 89 degrees there as I type this. Jefferson Parish estimates 20 days to restore power. We haven’t heard from any crew member west of Orleans Parish. No cell/internet. Why isn’t this trending?”
The destructive storm has caused damage across the state, killing at least one person, and many areas are without power.
A few other productions that are listed to be currently filming in the state had already wrapped by the time the storm hit – including the second season of Disney Channel’s Secrets of Sulphur Springs, Disney+’s upcoming sci-fi movie Crater and the Epix/Blumhouse movie A House on the Bayou.
Ida has now been downgraded to a Category 1 storm and is currently moving over Mississippi.
