Plane Carrying Morgan Freeman Forced To Make Emergency Landing In Mississippi Overnight, Highlight Hollywood News

A plane carrying Morgan Freeman made an emergency landing in Mississippi after experiencing troubles during take-off.   Freeman stated he is safe after abruptly landing in Tunica, Mississppi.



“I was on my plane on the way to Texas to shoot a segment for The Story of God,” said Freeman in a statement. “Sometimes things don’t go as planned and a tire blew on take-off which caused other problems. But thanks to my excellent pilot Jimmy Hobson we landed safely without a scratch.”



Freeman added, “I cannot say the same about my plane. I appreciate the concern and  prayers for our safety.”




Freeman is set executive produce and host National Geographic’s The Story of God where he will immerse himself in religious experiences and rituals across the globe. The series will air in 2016 in 171 countries and 45 languages.
