Jurassic World: Dominion is set to resume filming in ‘early-mid July’ in the UK – and will be the first movie to get back to work following the COVID-19 industry shutdown.

The sixth film in the Jurassic Park franchise began shooting in Canada earlier this year, but was halted when the global health crisis forced the majority of movie and TV productions into dormancy.

The likes of Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard were sent home and plans to fly them to the UK – where much of the movie was set to be shot at Pinewood Studios outside London – were put on hold.

In addition, returning Jurassic Park stars Laura Dern, Jeff Goldblum and Sam Neill were also stopped from joining them, having signed on to the sequel to appear as a trio for the first time since the original 1993 film.

But Universal have confirmed that pre-production will commence next week and that filming will re-start on July 6.

Speaking to Deadline, an exec from Universal said: ‘The plan is for us to be shooting early-mid July.’

They also said that the production will be ‘implementing rigorous safety protocols on-site’ over the rest of June, in guidance with post-lockdown regulations.

‘Anyone with symptoms will be isolated immediately before being sent home,’ the source went on. ‘We want to make sure that we are going above and beyond the national protocols to create a safe environment.

‘Cost isn’t our main concern now: it’s safety.’

The executive added: ‘We will take direction from our medical team, but we’re confident that with the staggered scheduling and zones of talent and crew, along with a system of contact tracing, we can move forward with limited delay in production.’

This will please fans of the franchise who are expecting Jurassic World: Dominion to hit cinemas on 11 June 2021.

Production has been delayed by around three months, with speculation rife that the sequel could face a late-summer release rather than an early-summer one.

The cast being flown out to the UK will also be required to undergo a two-week quarantine once arriving, before being allowed on set, as per the UK’s current travel rules.

Sam Neill – who will reprise his Jurassic Park and Jurassic Park III role of Dr Alan Grant – said last month that the sets were built ‘ready and waiting’ for things to resume.

‘I should be going into Pinewood at 6AM,’ he told The Guardian in May. ‘All the sets are there, waiting. I can’t wait to get back to it.’
