The blockbuster sequel of Jurassic World is said to create huge chaos while filming at Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire, England after several members in the crew tested as positive for COVID-19.
None of the main cast, includes Sam Neill, Laura Dern, Brye Dallas Howard, Jeff Goldblum and Chris Pratt have tested positive. However, it could be seen that more than one member has.
A source said: “This was the last thing anyone expected so soon. Everyone was excited about getting things back up and running on set but this has totally derailed that.”
“There are millions and millions of pounds at stake here. Nobody wants more long delays.”
The movie has already shot some Canada scenes in March. The movie’s director said: “For many of us, Dominion was already the biggest creative challenge of our lives, before the lockdown.”
“The shooting schedule really worked to our advantage – the first four weeks we put to film were mostly sequenced with dinosaurs in them. So that allowed us to get a head start on VFX and workshop some of the newer elements without the pressure of a looming deadline.”
He went on to speak to the publication: “I’m confident our [safety] guidelines will keep us safe. The hard part will be constructing a creative environment within all the precautions. Once the cameras roll, we have to forget our world and live in the world of the movie. That may take some practice.”
After the news of COVID-19 positive crew was released, fans of the franchise have been in shock as this would be a slap for all the work, the long-awaiting and the future of the Jurassic World: Dominion.
According to a source: “There are millions of pounds at stake, and it’s going to take months to catch up so this solution seems a good way to put minds at rest.”
“Everyone on set, from the runners to the leading stars, will have to drive through the testing station — and only those who pass the checks will be allowed on set. One person showing symptoms somewhere like this could be totally catastrophic!”
The source went on. “We want to make sure that we are going above and beyond the national protocols to create a safe environment.”
As expected from fans, Jurassic World: Dominion could possibly hit cinemas on June 11, 2021.
