Blumhouse Productions CEO and founder Jason Blum predicted Marvel Studios films won’t resume production until 2021.
In March, Marvel Studios was one of the many companies that were forced to suspend or delay the production of its projects due to the coronavirus pandemic. As businesses around the world begin to formulate plans on how to reopen in the midst of the ongoing pandemic, it remains unclear when Hollywood will be able to get cameras rolling again but America film producer Jason Blum predicts the answer won’t be the same for large productions.
In an article by the Los Angeles Times, Jason Blum was one of the many industry figures who weighed in on how Hollywood will move forward in a post-coronavirus world. While Jason Blum stated that he expects smaller projects will resume filming sooner, he also noted that he believes Marvel Studios films and other large scale blockbusters won’t pick up production until next year:
“I do think smaller productions will start sooner, but I don’t think we’re going to see Marvel movies shooting, or big expensive movies, until 2021. The real answer to your question is that it’s all about when testing will be in this country as good it is in other places, which it isn’t yet.”
