EXCLUSIVE: Jurassic World: Dominion is still on course to shoot in Malta from the end of the month, but will scale back its presence due to the rising number of COVID-19 infections on the island.

 

Stars Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard and Sam Neill will be among those no longer travelling to the country.

 

Per local reports last week, four Jurassic World crew members have tested positive for COVID-19 on the island. They are now self-isolating.

 

Malta has seen a spike in coronavirus cases this month and the UK last week added the country to its list of places from which arrivals must quarantine for 14 days. There are currently around 600 active cases on the island, almost half of the total number of infections recorded since the epidemic broke out in early March. From today, Malta will close all nightclubs, bars, concert halls and sports clubs in a bid to arrest the rising number of cases. Public gatherings are limited to 15 people.

 

Studio sources tell us that around 200 crew will be working on the multi-week second unit shoot, which is around a 50% reduction in the forecast team. The crew will be made up of local professionals and crew arriving from the UK, where the film has been based and will continue to shoot after Malta. Testing will be frequent. The Malta Film Commission told us yesterday it was anticipating close to 1,000 people being employed on the shoot in the country, which offers generous tax incentives for foreign movies.

 

Per a New York Times article last week, four Jurassic World crew members in the UK have tested positive for the virus since early July. They were isolated and no one became seriously ill, the studio said.

No doubt they're expecting Wonder Woman to move to early June. Even if this is close to finished filming, the backlog of movies means everything might as well move back an entire year from their original date to start filling up the schedule.

Makes sense. 2020 is a lost year for the film industry and i personally think at least half 2021 wont be much better.

I really think the possiblity of even more delays in filming due to the virus is one of the major reasons behind this move. Think the same for Batman. They now have a safety margin if shooting is delayed.

Will they recast Pratt since twitter wants him canceled?

I’m gonna take a wild guess and say no

 

whenever you hear “twitter says” all it basically means is a small portion of twitter anyways
