Zendaya And John David Washington Made A Whole Movie During Quarantine With A Ton Of Safety Measures
The cast and crew took COVID-19 tests and were not allowed to leave Monterey County.
Though the plot is still unknown, Deadline reports that the movie is somewhat akin to Marriage Story and was filmed secretly during the pandemic. It may be the first feature film to do so.
The movie was written within six days by Euphoria creator Sam Levinson after Zendaya asked if he could write a movie while Euphoria was suspended due to the pandemic.
John David Washington got the role because Levinson kept envisioning him as the perfect match for Zendaya for the film.
To ensure health and safety, the cast and crew took several COVID-19 tests and quarantined in Monterey for two weeks before filming.
They had their temperature taken twice a day, rehearsed in the parking lot, wore masks, and ate meals made by a chef who'd been quarantined with them.
Only 12 or less people were on set at a time, and crew members could only be in close proximity to the actors if they wore protective equipment.
Now, what we need next is a trailer or, at least, to know the plotline!
