THREE CREW MEMBERS TEST POSITIVE FOR COVID-19 ON SCREAM 5 SET

Filming has begun in the highly-anticipated film Scream, and word on the street is that three crew members have tested positive for COVID-19. According to Deadline, they’ve decided to temporarily shut down production for a few days and will resume shooting in Wilmington, North Carolina tomorrow.

The site explains that different departments have been broken up into group “pods” that have little to no interaction with other groups, and that production on Scream – unlike The Batman – does not have to be halted due to the fact that the crew members who tested positive “weren’t in the primary pod which includes the actors, the director, assistant directors and DP.”

If you remember, The Batman had to shut down production earlier this month after it’s lead actor Robert Pattinson tested positive for COVID-19.

Deadline also states, “The three Scream crew members who tested positive for COVID-19 will immediately be quarantined and undergo more testing. Contact tracing is also being practiced.”

Fingers crossed the crew who contracted the virus make a speedy recovery, and that the film will get to resume as planned. This disease is no joke.

Scream is being directed by Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett of the filmmaking group Radio Silence (Ready or Not, V/H/S) from a screenplay by James Vanderbilt (Murder Mystery, Zodiac, The Amazing Spider-Man) and Guy Busick (Ready or Not, Castle Rock).

Dylan Minnette (Goosebumps), Mason Gooding (Let It Snow), Kyle Gallner (Ghosts of War), Jasmin Savoy Brown (“Love”), Mikey Madison (Once Upon a Time in Hollywood) and Sonia Ammar star alongside Neve Campbell as Sidney Prescott, David Arquette and Courteney Cox who will return as Dewey Riley and Gale Weathers, as well as new cast members Jack Quaid (“The Boys”), Melissa Barrera (“In The Heights”) and Jenna Ortega (“You”). Marley Shelton is also returning as Scream 4 character Deputy Judy Hicks
