Filming has resumed in Britain on the movie “The Batman,” Warner Bros. said on Thursday, after a two-week shutdown caused by a member of the production - reported to be actor Robert Pattinson - who tested positive for the coronavirus.
“Following a hiatus for Covid- 19 quarantine precautions, filming has now resumed on The Batman in the U.K,” a Warner Bros. representative said in a statement.
The shutdown underscored the challenges that Hollywood is facing in getting back to work after months of pandemic-induced shutdowns, and the stringent safety measures they must now undertake.
It was not clear to what extent Pattinson, 34, best known for his breakout role in the vampire movie series “Twilight,” had suffered any Covid-19 symptoms.
“The Batman” has about three months of material left to shoot, according to Hollywood trade outlets. Its release was pushed back earlier this year to October 2021 from June 2021.
