    Natalie Portman has been currently filming for Apple TV+’s show ‘Lady in the Lake.’ But something not so good has happened that has led to a brief production halt.

    According to the Baltimore Banner, several locals confronted a driver for the production on Friday and said they would only “allow” shooting to continue if they were paid $50,000.

    The driver refused to pay and the group threatened to “come back later this evening [and] shoot someone” if production continued. This was confirmed by the Baltimore Police Department.

    A spokesperson from the department said, “the leaders of the production decided to err on the side of caution and reschedule the shoot after they found another location.” The production will resume with tightened security measures.
