‘Jurassic World’ shoot suspended after crew members test positive for COVID-19

The film's release has been pushed to June 2022


Production of Jurassic World: Dominion, which had restarted in the UK, 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.

“Woke up to the news we had a few positive Coronavirus tests on Jurassic World: Dominion. All tested negative shortly after, but due to our safety protocols we’re going to pause for two weeks. Back soon,” he tweeted.

Universal Pictures said on Tuesday that the release of Jurassic World: Dominion was delayed by one year until June 2022.

Jurassic World: Dominion stars Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard in a spin-off from the 1993 blockbuster Jurassic Park. It is not clear if any of these actors have tested positive for the coronavirus.

Last month, the shoot of The Batman in the UK was halted after Robert Pattinson tested positive.
