The outbreak of the COVID-19 virus, popularly known as the coronavirus, continues to paralyze the world. The new ones affected on this occasion are Dwayne Johnson and John Cena since the productions and premieres of their new films would have been delayed indefinitely.
For his part, Dwayne Johnson announced through his official Instagram account that the production of his new movie “Red Notice” will be completely halted for two weeks due to the coronavirus outbreak. Below is the full message:
“We are pressing pause on our @netflix production of RED NOTICE effective this Monday for the next two weeks. It’s my privilege to speak eye to eye with our entire crew to help give a little clarity and guidance, as the most important thing right now is for us to get everyone home to their concerned families. Gotta protect our babies, spouses, loved ones and elderly.
We’ll continue to monitor and assess this situation closely to make the best decisions for our families first and then our businesses. We’re a resilient nation who ultimately, will always rise to the occasion to be accountable and work together to overcome whatever hardship lies in front of us. Our country will do its job, as the rest of the world will do theirs. Everyone please stay healthy, vigilant, safe and let’s protect one another. We’re all in this – together. DJ”
For its part, Fast & Furious 9, a film that will star among others by John Cena, has postponed its premiere until 2021.
