The Batman and other films ready to get back on track!
In March the world came to a halt due to the COVID pandemic. The film industry was massively impacted as theaters were closed and productions around the world were paused. With different places slowly opening up some productions are being allowed to resume their work.
According to The Guardian, the UK government and health bodies have signed off on new coronavirus safety rules that give the producers of Hollywood the green light to restart filming. This includes the blockbuster films like The Batman and the third Fantastic Beasts film from Warner Bros. Pictures. The new guidelines would allow films and high-end television productions to start presumably as soon as July.
The British Film Commission and the British Film Institute have put together set guidelines for producers. They include rules on social distancing, safety training, and temperature tests. It will be up to each production on deciding how and when they are going to restart filming. Some need to get started right away as they rely on summer weather conditions. If not they may get delayed until next year.
Along with the two Warner Bros productions, many other major productions are ready to get going. These include Disney’s live-action film Litte Mermaid and Netflix’s second season of The Witcher. The UK is one of the most important locations for film and television. It is home to over 300 films and high-end television productions last year.
