SUMMERFIELD, Fla. (AP) -- Authorities say two people are dead after their small plane crashed as they filmed a zombie movie in north Florida.

Marion County Sheriff's officials say the plane went down around 8 p.m. Sunday in Summerfield, near Ocala.

The sheriff's office says 65-year-old Dennis W. Monroe was flying the plane as the passenger, 70-year-old Joseph Lewis Sardinas, was filming a scene involving an airplane in a low budget zombie movie being shot in Summerfield.

The Ocala Star-Banner (http://bit.ly/1qe2yqv) reports witnesses told deputies the plane banked a turn over the filming site, then the plane stalled. It went down nose first.

The Federal Aviation Administration will investigate the crash.
