NZ Returns To Production, Paving Way For ‘LotR’ To Resume

Postby Otaku-sempai » Thu May 07, 2020 6:56 pm

From Deadline:

EXCLUSIVE: New Zealand’s health and safety production protocols have been endorsed by the national government, we can reveal, meaning production can restart in the country after it was halted by the coronavirus pandemic.

Some film and TV shoots “are already safely underway,” the New Zealand Film Commission has confirmed to us. This potentially paves the way for the country’s highest-profile productions, James Cameron’s Avatar sequels and Amazon’s The Lord Of The Rings series, to get back underway.

You're welcome! Though there's been no updates about the actual production yet.

To elaborate, New Zealand has emerged from full lockdown to a mere "Level 2"... so we're basically a bubble in a sea of disease. :)

New Zealand is really lucky! I hope the showrunners are able to get back on track with LOTR soon.

I haven't kept up.
I hope all is still good in NZ.
Has production resumed?

It seems that it was paused again for a while because of a new outbreak and has now been able to resume again.

The second outbreak (now dealt with) was confined to Auckland. We still don't know how it got in, actually.

But we're all back to Level One, so normality is resumed.
