Tom Cruise film ‘American Made’ is tangled in lawsuits after deadly plane crash

The upcoming Tom Cruise movie “American Made” is ensnared in lawsuits related to a plane crash during production in Colombia in 2015 that resulted in the deaths of two of the film’s crew members, and an insurer that covered the plane wants nothing to do with the legal battle.

Great American Insurance Co., based in Cincinnati, is asking a federal court in Los Angeles to determine if it is responsible for defending parties in twolawsuits brought by relatives of the deceased.

Hollywood stunt pilot Alan Purwin and another man, Carlos Berl, were killed in the 2015 crash of a small aircraft flying from the town of Santa Fe de Antioquia to the city of Medellin. Cruise was not aboard the plane.

Relatives of Purwin sued the movie’s production companies — including Imagine Entertainment and Cross Creek Pictures — as well as the estate of Berl. Their suit alleges that Berl was piloting the plane at the time of the crash even though he lacked the skills to do so.
