The shooting of the third part of the “Jurassic World” series is to continue despite the rising number of coronavirus infections in Malta. Leading actor Chris Pratt 41 does not want to take any risks according to a report in the “Mail on Sunday” and allegedly refuses to travel to the Mediterranean country between Sicily and North Africa. He also calls on the rest of the cast and production crew to do the same.
An unspecified source from the film set reported to the newspaper: “There are some COVID 19 cases among the employees behind the camera as a result of an outbreak in Malta.” Chris Pratt, therefore, believes it is the right thing to “not get on a plane and to fly there ”. In addition, the 41-year-old, who recently became a father for the second time, pointed out to other employees in the film production that Malta was not safe.
