“Them That Adhere to” — the new thriller about scary snakes and a religious household that handles them to prove themselves to God — had a tragedy on set when a bird died in the hands of a single of the stars … and the cameras had been rolling.
Footage from the film set — obtained by TMZ — shows actress Alice Englert with a quail in her hands correct soon after the moment she realizes a thing is horribly incorrect with the bird.
It sounds like Alice says, “Oh my god, this is so f****d” as she hands the bird to its handler … and becomes increasingly distressed as she processes what occurred.
Englert then asks, “Is it dead?” … and starts to sob as she gets confirmation.
Producers from the film have confirmed with TMZ the animal died, but inform us no one knows why. They insist it was not mistreated or mishandled in any way.
The producers add … “We hired leading animal wranglers and operating experts in the organization … we take complete responsibly and deeply regret this isolated incident.”
We’re told in the scene, Englert’s character pretends to feed a quail to a snake. You see couple of snakes in cages just off to the correct of Alice.
The bird wrangler on set tells TMZ, “We are ultimate experts and care about every single and each animal we deal with. The overriding theme of our educational plan is the significance of all animals. No a single of the cast or crew did something to have an effect on this sad occasion.”
We’re told this scene was filmed in 2017 close to Youngstown, Ohio. “Them That Adhere to” just came out in theaters Friday. Along with Englert, it stars Olivia Colman, Kaitlyn Dever, Walton Goggins and Jim Gaffigan.
