Universal has become the latest studio to suspend production on live-action film projects because of the coronavirus crisis. 

The titles affected are Jurassic World: Dominion, Flint Strong and the Untitled Billy Eichner Project.

In a statement, the studio said: “Universal Pictures’ live-action feature productions will ramp down and go on hiatus beginning this weekend. The studio continues to monitor the situation closely and will make a determination on when to restart production in the coming weeks.”

Jurassic World: Dominion, directed by Colin Trevorrow, began shooting at the UK’s Pinewood Studios in February. 

Rachel Morrison’s sports drama Flint Strong, starring Ice Cube and Ryan Destiny, started filming in Flint, Michigan and Vancouver earlier in March.

Production on the untitled Billy Eichner film, directed by Nicholas Stoller was set to begin this month.

Yesterday (March 13), Disney and Netflix also suspended production on their live-action projects.
