'Jurassic World: Dominion' Resumes Shooting Amid Pandemic

Jurassic World: Dominion is getting started again.

The highly anticipated sequel in the long-running franchise started filming again this week in the U.K. amid the pandemic, Variety reported Friday (July 10).

“Any reports indicating that Jurassic World: Dominion has halted production are categorically untrue. The production is in its fifth day of shooting today, and we’re thrilled to be back in front of the camera on this incredible project,” a Universal rep confirmed in a statement amid reports that the production experienced a shutdown due to more than one crew member testing positive for coronavirus.

Jurassic World: Dominion was four weeks into its 20-week production when production first shut down.

Variety reported that Universal would be implementing new safety procedures to keep the set at Pinewood Studios free from COVID-19. The cost, including temperature checks and coronavirus testing, is apparently in the $5 million range according to insiders.

The movie stars Chris Pratt reprising his role as Owen Grady and Bryce Dallas Howard as Claire Dearing, plus Sam Neill, Laura Dern, Jeff Goldblum, Justice Smith, and BD Wong. The movie is set to open on June 11, 2021.
