British film industry can get back to work: recordings ‘The Batman’ and ‘The Little Mermaid’ can continue

It seems that the crews behind include The Batman and the live action version of The Little Mermaid can get back to work soon. The filming of the films came to a halt due to the corona crisis, but can in principle be resumed quickly.

The outbreak of the new corona virus has shattered the economy around the world. The film industry has also had a hard time with recordings that had to be stopped. And of films that were already recorded, the release date moved further and further.

British corona measures

One of the films whose recordings could not continue is The Batman. The print (with Twilightactor and hater Robert Pattinson in the lead role) will normally hit theaters in the summer of 2021. But it remains to be seen whether that release date is feasible, now that the recordings have been still for months.

That could change soon. Because British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has decided (as in many other countries) to gradually relax the corona measures. Various sectors of the British economy can get back to work, and indirectly this also means that the film industry can restart.

Safe to proceed?

Matt Reeves, the director of The Batman, stopped the recording of the print “until it is safe for all of us to continue”. And a lot of people aren’t sure that point has already been reached, even though Boris Johnson claims it has.

In the United Kingdom, more than 40,000 people have already succumbed to the effects of Covid-19. The British are therefore the worst students in the European class.


It remains to be seen how the teams behind include The Batman and the live action version of The Little Mermaid will deal with the indirect approval to proceed.

Because no matter how much we long to see Robert Pattinson as Batman, Jonah Hauer-King as Prince Eric and Halle Bailey as Ariel, the health of the actors and the film crews remains a priority.
