The film industry is being impacted by the coronavirus as well after several sports leagues have decided to suspend seasons and wrestling events being canceled.
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson took to his official Instagram account where he shared a video of himself giving a speech to the production staff of his latest movie that filming is on hold due to concerns of the coronavirus.
The film, Red Notice, is about an Interpol agent that tracks the world’s most wanted art thief. The film, which is being produced and will air on Netflix, also stars Ryan Reynolds and Gal Gadot.
The Rock wrote the following in the caption:
“We are pressing pause on our Netflix production of RED NOTICE effective this Monday for the next two weeks,” announced The Rock on Instagram. “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.”
