Natalie Portman has to be one of the most powerful actresses in all of Hollywood. With an Oscar-winning career, in addition to starring in blockbuster films and producing Tv and movies, she can do it all. However, sometimes bad luck can overshadow a production that you can be involved with.
The Los Angeles Times reports that “Lady in the Lake,” the forthcoming series for AppleTV+, shut down on Friday afternoon after locals of Baltimore threatened to shoot someone on the set of the limited series. In a statement from the Baltimore Police Department, “the locals” warned producers that they would “come back later this evening [and] shoot someone” if they didn’t stop filming on the 200 block of Park Avenue. The residents of Baltimore said that they would “come back later this evening [and] shoot someone” if they didn’t stop filming on the 200 block of Park Avenue.
“The leaders of the production decided to err on the side of caution and reschedule the shoot after they found another location,”
The Maryland Economic Development Association announced in April that “Lady in the Lake” had begun shooting in the state and would continue filming “throughout the Baltimore region” until October.
“Lady in the Lake” is being adapted from bestselling author Laura Lippman’s novel of the same name. The series stars Academy Award winner and showrunner Natalie Portman as a housewife-turned-journalist investigating a murder, and Emmy nominee Moses Ingram as an activist fighting for social justice in 1960s Baltimore.
