Hollywood blockbuster to start filming in Malta as 5,000 swab tests are to be carried out on the crew throughout the production’s time on the island.
The production was originally slated to start filming earlier this year but had to be stopped after the COVID-19 pandemic struck.
Malta Film Commissioner Johann Grech told MaltaToday this will be the first blockbuster production since the pandemic started.
“We are reigniting the industry with a bang,” he said, insisting that all necessary health measures are being taken in collaboration with health authorities.
“Around 5,000 tests will be carried out on those involved throughout the production,” he said. The production will be employing around 1,000 individuals.
