New ‘Jurassic World’ Movie Halts Production Again After Fresh COVID Cases
The latest “Jurassic World” movie just got hit by a viral meteor, sort of, and it puts things on ice behind and in front of the camera, once again.
Director Colin Trevorrow made the announcement on Wednesday, saying that a new batch of COVID-19 cases were discovered on the set of “Jurassic World: Dominion” … and, as a result, the production is going on a brief hiatus .
He writes: “I woke up to the news we had a few positive coronavirus tests on Jurassic World: Dominion. All tested negative shortly thereafter, but due to our safety protocols we are going to take a break two weeks. Back soon. ” So, in other words, potential false positives here.
In any case, just give Universal Studios a break. The studio says their rigid protocols don’t allow them to resume, even though the cast / team tested negative right after – stressing that they prefer prevention than cure. Those affected have isolated themselves.
It’s unclear who within production – cast or crew – might have contracted coronavirus. Chris Pratt is lead and Laura Dern, Jeff Goldblum and Sam neill all reprise their roles from the original “Jurassic Park”.
None of them talk about their health … but all of them hooked up the movie in the last 24 hours.
This development of ‘rona is the film’s most recent flip side. It also closed in March due to the pandemic – and earlier this week Universal pushed its release date back a full year until June 2022!
A tough year for moviegoers, man. Dinosaur fans too.
Our sincere thanks to
