Czech Republic gives Falcon and the Winter Soldier permission to resume filming

May 8th, 2020 by Marc Comments

Well, here’s a bit of – potentially – good news during these days of lockdown.

Disney+ series The Falcon and The Winter Soldier has been given permission to resume production in the Czech Republic standards where it was filming before the world locked down in March.

The Czech Republic has cleared productions to resume with new rules including new hygienic standards, testing of actors for coronavirus infection every 14 days during production, and maintaining sanitation standards both on location and in studios.

In the case of The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, foreign actors and crew members will have to present a negative test result before departing their home country in order to be allowed into the Czech Republic. Within 72 hours of arrival, foreigners will be given a second test and remain quarantined until the result of the test is shown as negative.

“In this way they can avoid the 14-day quarantine [which applies to other foreign visitors] which would severely impact film budgets,” said Czech film commissioner Pavlina Zipkova.

Disney has yet to decide if it will send its cast and crew to resume production as of yet, but it’s still a good sign and I’d imagine, if permission is granted, the house of mouse will be keen to get the ball rolling.

The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, WandaVision, Loki, What If…? Hawkeye, Ms. Marvel, She-Hulk, and Moon Knight have yet to be given release dates.
