Netflix to remove Lac-Megantic footage from 'Bird Box'

Netflix has agreed to remove images of the 2013 Lac-Megantic disaster that killed 47 people from its blockbuster film, "Bird Box." People in the Quebec town and across the province were shocked after learning in January that footage from the derailment was used in the drama starring Sandra Bullock. A spokesman for the streaming company apologized to the Lac-Megantic community and said "Netflix and the filmmakers of 'Bird Box' have decided to replace the clip." The company initially apologized and promised to do better, but until now it had refused to edit the film. The footage will be removed from the film within the next two weeks.
