Fantastic Beasts 3 Production Halted Due to Positive COVID Test Among Cast
The Daily Mail reported earlier right now that an “irreplaceable” forged member of the third Fantastic Beasts installment, presently in manufacturing at Leavesden Studios, has contracted COVID-19. MuggleNet can solely verify that that is true, however solely in the truth that each human life is irreplaceable.
The “cast member” who contracted the virus was an additional, not a principal forged member. We weren’t capable of verify the pressure of the virus contracted by the additional since Warner Bros. didn’t return our request for remark. Nonetheless, in accordance with the Each day Mail, a Warner Bros. consultant made this assertion:
A crew member from Unbelievable Beasts 3 has examined optimistic for COVID-19. The prognosis was confirmed on account of required and ongoing testing that each one manufacturing workers obtain, and the crew member is presently in isolation. Out of an abundance of warning, Unbelievable Beasts 3 paused manufacturing and will probably be again up in accordance with security pointers.
As we beforehand solely reported, filming is due to wrap this week, and the shutdown comes simply two days prior.
Final September, Leavesden Studios needed to halt production on The Batman for a few weeks after Robert Pattinson (who performed Cedric Diggory in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Hearth) examined optimistic for COVID-19. Contemplating he was the star of that movie, we will hope that manufacturing on Unbelievable Beasts doesn’t need to be shut down for as lengthy, however that’s assuming the virus has not unfold additional among the many forged and crew. With the brand new, extra transmissible coronavirus variants now in circulation, it is smart that Warner Bros. would wish to take each precaution.
We hope to listen to extra info quickly.
The still-untitled Unbelievable Beasts 3 has a launch date of July 15, 2022.
