Two people are dead after their small plane crashed as they filmed a zombie movie in north Florida, authorities say.
 
Marion County Sheriff's officials say the plane went down around 8 p.m. Sunday in Summerfield, near Ocala.
 
The sheriff's office has not released the names of the victims. They say the passenger was filming the pilot during the flight for a scene involving an airplane in a low-budget zombie movie being shot in Summerfield.

Witnesses told deputies the plane banked a turn over the filming site, its engine stalled and it went down nose first, the sheriff's office reported.

A photo released by the sheriff's office showed the badly damaged plane on a grassy area shortly after it went down.
 
The Federal Aviation Administration will investigate the crash.
