The film was originally shot in London in February 2020. However, it was abruptly shutdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Filming resumed last Summer 2020 with extreme safety precautions in place including….
Wearing Face Masks (especially when the cameras are not rolling),
Constant tests (to make sure no one has the coronavirus),
Safety Training Seminars,
Isolation with the different departments,
and Pre-portioned and wrapped refreshments.
With the pandemic, it also delayed the release of the film twice. Originally, it was going to be released in Theaters in February 2021 and then this ongoing month of July 2021. Eventually with extreme restrictions, the movie ended up now going to Amazon Prime.
