With the coronavirus bringing the entire world to a halt, the film industry was hit in a major way. Movies set to be released were delayed and numerous movies’ production was suspended.
One movie hit by the coronavirus was the Venom sequel. After a successful origin movie, Venom 2: Let There Be Carnage was set to be released in October 2020 and was in the middle of production when it was shut down due to the pandemic.
While many in the movie’s crew are eager to get back to work, producer Dan Wilson admitted it was important to wait until everyone felt safe before returning to the set.
In an interview with Vanity Fair, Wilson acknowledged that everyone on the movie had their own ideas on when to return to the movie, but they would first build a plan to make sure there was protection all around them before doing so.
“Nobody wants to go into an environment that’s going to be risky and that goes for crew members too. It’s not just talent. It’s everybody involved on set.
“There’s a nervousness and that’s natural and understandable. In the plans that we’ve discussed, they’ve certainly taken that into account and we’ll see when we get there, I guess.”
The sequel’s released date has been pushed back to June 2021 and will see the live action debut of longtime Spider-Man villain Carnage. While many are excited at the prospect of seeing the movie, it is important that the crew waiting until it’s absolutely safe to return before doing so and if that means waiting a little longer then so be it.
