The coronavirus outbreak has caused Disney Studios to shut down work on several films, the company said Friday.
Production and pre-production on “The Last Duel,” “The Little Mermaid,” “Shang-Chi and The Legend of the Ten Rings,” “Home Alone,” “Nightmare Alley,” “Peter Pan & Wendy” and “Shrunk” have shut down temporarily.
“While there have been no confirmed cases of COVID-19 on our productions, after considering the current environment and the best interests of our cast and crew, we have made the decision to pause production on some of our live-action films for a short time. We will continue to assess the situation and restart as soon as feasible,” Disney said in a statement, according to Variety.
“The Little Mermaid” was scheduled to start shooting in London next week.
“The Last Duel,” directed by Ridley Scott, has been shooting in Ireland since February.
