 they can do the "covid-safe" scenes now, and then do the scenes which require more people together at another time.

That would cost a lot of money, i'm not sure film budgets can afford that. 

 

I'm pretty sure the pandemic will affect all those action, big movies that require many extras and all the people on set. It's a sad reality

It's certainly true that you can't shoot a whole film in a "Covid-secure" environment. However, for most of the films in production now, they have already shot large parts of the movie, and so can use this time to do some smaller scale scenes. Or the films that are just starting to shoot, they can do the "covid-safe" scenes now, and then do the scenes which require more people together at another time. Films have reshoots all the time and given how long a film's production takes, I'm sure it will be feasible to complete the movie the way they wanted.

 

 

Also just as a general point. Scripts get re-written all the time. For all sorts of reasons - practical/financial etc.

You can make a movie within lots of parameters, and good filmmakers can still make good films out of that.

For this particular film, they only managed to shoot about a quarter of it before production was halted the first time around.

The marketing budget doesn't go to fucking Phoenix though so my point still stands, a big megafranchise deal with Marvel is still definitely bigger than whatever the hell he got for Joker 

 

Not necessarily, bonus structure for both project can be quite different, say he got around a $4M + 10%  to $5M + 15% for the joker, that getting a $50M to $70M payday. Cameron Diaz Bad Teacher deal ended up being maybe bigger than any non RDJ actor got for a single movie in MCU history.

Two: You really think Phoenix getting a 6-7 film deal with Marvel would be less than he'd be getting for a 2 film deal for two indie-budget sized DC movies?

Successful franchise sequel money tend to be extremely different than non sequel one, the power dynamic is completely shifted (I doubt you get gross point on that Marvel film deal, really easily possible on that sequel DC movies). And density matter a lot (on how many year of work, engagement, how many junket tour....) it is not just overall money without considering when the flow come in.

 

Imagine he was offered $5M by major role appearance with some pre-made bonus (say $1M for each $50M at the WW BO after 550) on Marvel and $1M for small role appearance, that can get beat by the regular non sequel 90s star deal of 20M+10% goss.

For those saying the quality of movies won't be affected by the pandemic, here is a producer that says otherwise.

 

 

https://variety.com/2020/film/news/new-republic-hollywood-restart-production-brian-oliver-1234770878/

Well, the full article doesn’t talk exactly about the quality of the movies. Even this part you posted here are incomplete.

 

He’s talking about insurance and how the changes to keep the sets more safe is making the budgets grow. He said for example, because everyone needs to get tested everyday, they have less time to shoot, so they need more days to make everything and this make the movies more expensive. 
 

He also questioning the need to shut productions when someone get sick, but not exactly because it will affect the quality, but because this brings $20-30M additional budget.

I thought they just started filming again? So are they taking a break for another few weeks?

If even Batman got infected, just imagine how many people have gotten COVID and don’t realize it!

They did start filming again. They haven’t started filming in Liverpool yet.

If only he'd worked out more, the virus would not have been able to get through his defenses. 😐

The Batman to Film in Chicago Next Month

 

Quote

The Batman is scheduled to shoot in Chicago, Illinois in October of this year. Screen Magazine provides a bit more context for the shoot, reporting that the production is set to film for five days across two weekends -- October 16th-18th, and October 24th-25th. Their report alleges that filming will take place in downtown Chicago, and features "extensive driving sequences".

I thought this was filming exclusively in England? 

That is within the context of the UK, according to this article https://www.thewrap.com/mission-impossible-7-the-batman-production-resume-uk/

 

It says

Quote

 

Other major blockbusters set to start or resume filming in the country include Universal’s “Jurassic World: Dominion,” Warner Bros.’ “Fantastic Beasts 3,” Sony’s live-action musical adaptation of “Cinderella” and Disney’s remake of “The Little Mermaid.”

However, the exemption comes with conditions. The productions that are restarting will only be filming in England, and crew members will be restricted to a “bubble” environment, where they will live in close proximity to the production area and will not be able to leave to the surrounding community.

Dowden says that the exemptions are being granted in an effort to revive the British film industry in a safe manner. Officials estimate that film and TV shoots in the UK generated over £3 billion in 2019.

 

 

That means, "Not in other areas of the UK". It is UK government that allows the productions to restart, but they must not go to Wales, Scotland or Northern Ireland.

 

The UK government obviously cannot limit them to not go to other countries out of the UK. They can go film wherever they like as long as they have permission.

 

FYI, the movie has already had a shoot in Scotland (Glasgow) at the beginning of production.
