“Jurassic World: Dominion”— the third film in the “Jurassic World” series — will head back to production during the coronavirus pandemic, becoming one of the first Hollywood films to do so. Bryce Dallas Howard recently shared thoughts about the decision.

What’s going on?

  • Universal studios’ “Jurassic World: Dominion” is reportedly the first major Hollywood film to return to production amid the coronavirus pandemic, according to Deadline.
  • The film hopes to return to full production by mid-July.
  • Universalhas teamed with U.K.’s British Film Commission and U.S. unions to develop a plan of safety standards, Deadline reports.

What did Bryce Dallas Howard say?

  • Howard— who has starred in the first two “Jurassic World” films — said the cast will only return when things are perfectly safe, according to Entertainment Weekly. She said the studios are going “above and beyond” for safety reasons.
  • Howard said: “There’s been a lot of communication. They are going above and beyond. We would never go back to work if we didn’t feel safe. And, you know, we’re taking it a day at a time and I’m very grateful to have a job.”
  • Howardsaid: “What feels really right about it is that there is this daily conversation, daily communication with all of the actors, with the key crew members and just us consistently being like, ‘Okay, how are we going to do this? How are we going to do this safely?’ and not making compromises that could undermine someone’s health.”
