Even though it has been mostly events and places that gather large crowds that we hear being shut down due to Coronavirus fears, we can now add film and television production to the list as The Falcon and the Winter Soldier has shut down production in Prague because of the spread of the virus, according to Deadline.
- Marvel’s The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, which has normally been filming in Atlanta, was supposed to film in Prague for about a week. Today, the company has called the cast and crew back to Atlanta due to concerns with the global spread of the Coronavirus. At this time, it seems unlikely the production will return to Prague.
- Prague, like other places on the planet, has shut down schools, events, and placed restrictions on travel because of the virus.
- This is the second time an event in the real world has affected the production of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. Earlier this year, large earthquakes in Puerto Rico caused the shoots there to be cancelled.
- The Falcon and the Winter Soldier is still set to debut on Disney+ in August. It is unclear at this time how the halts in production will affect the show.
