Hollywood Blockbuster Pushed Back to 2022 After COVID-19 Diagnoses

They waited 65 million years to return to earth…what’s another twelve months?

Hollywood, like many professional American sports teams, have been trying to get back to work in recent weeks, despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

There have been mixed results in both instances, with the MLB having to postpone 20% of its games during its delayed opening weekend on account of outbreaks on several teams, and the NFL facing that same issue just this week.

Now, one of Hollywood’s most storied franchises is dealing with a similar issue, and it’s pushing movie release dates back years

Filming on the new “Jurassic World” movie at Pinewood Studios in the U.K. has been suspended for two weeks because of COVID-19 cases on set. Director Colin Trevorrow tweeted Wednesday that there were “a few” positive tests for the virus.

He added that the individuals tested negative shortly after, but that they would be pausing for two weeks regardless to adhere to safety protocols.

A spokesperson for Universal Pictures said they were informed of the positive tests last night and that all tested negative this morning.

“The safety and well-being of our entire cast and crew is paramount,” the spokesperson added. “Those who initially tested positive are currently self-isolating, as are those who they have come into contact with.”
