Hollywood restarts movie production with 'Jurassic World: Dominion' and 'Avatar'

Mon 15th June, 2020 6:07pm
LOS ANGELES, June 15 (Reuters) - Universal Studios  CMCSA.O 
said on Monday it expects to resume production in early July on
"Jurassic World: Dominion" as Hollywood begins to emerge from a
three-month coronavirus shutdown.
    Universal said it plans to get shooting on the movie
underway at Pinewood Studios in England on July 6 under
stringent protocols for the cast and crew to contain the spread
of the coronavirus.
    It will be one of the first major movies to restart work
after filming on James Cameron's "Avatar" sequel for 20th
Century Studios  DIS.N  resumed in New Zealand on Monday.
Producer Jon Landau and the cast and crew ended two weeks in
quarantine after their return to the country, which has said it
is now free of the virus.  urn:newsml:reuters.com:*:nL4N2DS2F1
    Work on "Jurassic World: Dominion," starring Chris Pratt and
Bryce Dallas Howard, came to an abrupt halt in mid-March because
of the coronavirus pandemic, which shut down movie and
television sets around the world.
   The protocols include a two-week quarantine for actors and
crew flying into the UK and frequent coronavirus tests and
antibody tests for all cast and crew, as well as daily
temperature tests. Some 150 hand sanitizer stations will be
installed and there will be a "green zone" with enhanced testing
for actors, Universal said.
    "Jurassic World: Dominion," a spin-off from the 1993
"Jurassic Park" blockbuster about the return of dinosaurs, is
scheduled to be released in movie theaters in June 2021.
    Hollywood publication Deadline, which first reported the
news, said that Universal was spending around $5 million on the
safety measures.
    Netflix  NFLX.O  has said it has resumed production in
Iceland and South Korea on some of its movies and TV shows.
    Movie studios got the green light last week to resume
production in the Los Angeles area, where most Hollywood studios
are based, but are expected to need several more weeks for a
mass return to work.
