Late last week, there were reports coming out of the U.K. that filming on the upcoming ‘Jurassic World: Dominion‘ had to be put on pause due to multiple positive COVID-19 tests.
Several sources claimed that production had started back on July 6, but then had to pause a few days later after more than one crew member tested positive for COVID-19.
But now a spokesperson for Universal claims that’s not the case…
Any reports indicating that Jurassic World: Dominion has halted production are categorically untrue. The production is in its fifth day of shooting today, and we’re thrilled to be back in front of the camera on this incredible project.
The movie had been filming for quite a while before the pandemic hit. It was around a month in before production had to be put on pause a few months back.
But given the magnitude of the film, production is scheduled to last 20 weeks, so they still have a long way to go.
Jurassic World: Dominion, the sixth film in the 27-year-old franchise, stars Chris Pratt reprising his role at dinosaur wrangler Owen Grady and Bryce Dallas Howard as Claire Dearing along with Sam Neill, Laura Dern, Jeff Goldblum, Justice Smith, and BD Wong.
As of right now, it’s still scheduled to be released on June 11, 2021.
