Tom Cruise partially blamed for 'negligence' around plane crash

Tom Cruise on set of'American Made. The film required extensive flying and was'dangerous according to a suit by the families of the pilots that were killed in a plane crash during filming

"They were incredible about safety from everything that I saw", 33 year old Olsen said.

Tom Cruise is known for taking huge risks in shooting.

Three of the pilots working on the movie American Made were in a twin-engine Piper Smith Aerostar 600 when it went down in the mountains in September 2015.

This is not all as we need to add that families of two pilots are also suing one another and that Berl family also filed a lawsuit against pilot that survived the crash, Jimmy Lee Garland. According to new court documents obtained by People, the action movie's star is partially to blame.

In the filing, the lawyers also wrote, "The demands of filming in Colombia, together with Cruise's and director Doug Liman's enthusiasm for multiple takes of lavish flying sequences, added hours to every filming day and added days to the schedule".

Tom Cruise was named partially responsible for the death of two pilots and severe injury of a third on set of the film "American Made". They alleged in new court documents, obtained by People magazine, that both Cruise and director Doug Liman contributed in part to the accident by making excessive demands on the pilots for the objective of filming multiple takes - though they themselves are not actually named in the lawsuit.

The families are suing the movie's production companies Imagine Entertainment, Cross Creek Pictures and Vendian Entertainment for wrongful death and damages.

The plane crash happened in October 2015.

Jeff Korek, a lawyer representing Berl's family, told The Hollywood Reporter in July that with the suit against the producers, he and the family "hope to put a dent in the pocketbook of the motion picture industry" and force 'the industry to understand and practice one concept. safety before profits at all times'.

They claimed the crash could have been avoided, arguing that Tom himself could have piloted the plane, calling him "a well-qualified pilot very familiar with the Aerostar and the routing".

The film, originally titled "Mena", is set for release September 29. In them, he called the film "the most insane s**t" he'd ever dealt with and claimed "There's a very "thin line" between keeping all aerial activities safe and having an accident".

The families claimed that they allowed the risky flight to take place despite the fact that the "vintage aircraft" needed to fly across an "unfamiliar mountain" amid bad weather conditions.
