    Two people were killed when their small plane went down as they filmed a zombie movie in Summerfield, Florida.

    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.
