Jurassic World: Dominion is set to become one of the first major studio titles to restart filming in the U.K. The film was forced on hiatus in March due to the pandemic.
Universal has confirmed that production will restart on July 6 at Pinewood Studios. Pre-production is scheduled to begin this week.
Universal says that they will be implementing their own safety and health regulations in addition to following the U.K.'s own regulations regarding social distancing and other coronavirus-related safety standards.
Update: Deadline reports that Universal is reportedly spending $5 million on safety protocols, including Covid-19 tests, hand sanitizer stations, and on-site medical staff.
Masks will be mandatory for everyone except actors while they are performing. All cast members and crew will be tested before coming on set and multiple times during production. There will be “green zones” for cast and crew.
An Universal executive tells Deadline that anyone who gets Covid will be isolated before being sent home.
Colin Trevorrow returns to direct the big budget sequel starring Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard. Chris and Bryce will also be forced to undergo a two week quarantine.
