Though movie shots are slowly getting back to work as usual, the risks of during the still un-curtailed coronavirus pandemic loom large and are proving precarious for those shooting, which begs the question if production houses should have held out a bit longer. The latest to be afflicted by the dreaded disease are a few crew members from the upcoming Jurassic park movie, Jurassic World: Dominion, the third installment in the Jurassic World series, following 2018’s Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, and the sixth entry in the billion-dollar, classic JP franchise.
The UK schedule of Jurassic World Dominion has been suspended after multiple crew members tested positive for COVID-19, but the good news is that the same individuals returned negative tests soon after. However, the shoot needs to be suspended as per the strict safety guidelines implemented. Director Colin Trevorrow broke the news on Twitter and wrote: “Woke up to the news we had a few positive Coronavirus tests on Jurassic World: Dominion. All tested negative shortly after, but due to our safety protocols we’re going to pause for two weeks. Back soon.” Check pout his tweet below:
