The Jurassic World: Dominion has been halted its production for two weeks after the production team tested positive for coronavirus. Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment have pushed the release of the movie back by a year to June 10, 2022 due to the uncertainties surrounding the theatrical calendar.
According to the statement of a universal spokesperson reported by the Hollywood Reporter said, “Late last night, we were informed that the Jurassic World: Dominion production experienced a small amount of positive tests for COVID-19. Even though subsequent tests proved negative this morning, due to our rigid protocols and to ensure that the safety and well-being of our entire cast and crew is paramount at all times, those who initially tested positive are currently self-isolating, as are those who they have come into contact with. As a result, filming has been temporarily paused and will resume in accordance with established safety guidelines.
The director of the film, Colin Trevorrow, took to twitter to react to this news, “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 even posted a picture of a dinosaur baby figurine wearing a mask.
