When the various shutdowns were first announced, the hope was that work would start back up in early April, but even May is somewhat optimistic in many parts of the world right now.
One source tells the trade that the films likely to resume production soon are those in the US. They add that, “the expectation is that in-demand stars such as Chris Pratt in ‘Jurassic World: Dominion’ or Dwayne Johnson and Ryan Reynolds in ‘Red Notice’ will be able to convince forthcoming productions to move their start dates further into the future so they can finish shooting.”
However, actors in supporting roles who have larger parts in various other upcoming productions are likely going to be forced to drop out, and “insiders say studio executives are already checking in on the availability of other actors who can serve as possible replacements.”
With that in mind, it’s probably a good job that so many movies are being delayed right now, as the wait for those we were expecting in the first half of 2021 will now be that little bit longer.
