Fun Q&A with Scott Adkins from earlier today. He discusses the sudden halt in production of CASTLE FALLS. They just may have answered a question from yours truly, in fact. :wink:

Good to hear that Adkins is (at least "mentally" and personnaly) still commited to the film. :)

Extras on $et: Inside Hollywood’s Pricey Plans to Restart Production

In theory, independent productions are far better situated to get back to work. Yale Prods., which makes movies with budgets between $2 million and $10 million, had shot for one day on “Castle Falls,” a Dolph Lundgren project the company is executive producing in Alabama, when it was shut down by Birmingham’s public health department. In lieu of concrete guidance on how to move forward, the production company is developing its own rules — ones that will cost more. “It is inevitable that we do spend more money,” says partner Jordan Yale Levine. “But we’re trying to minimize how much that is.”

Keeping the cast and crew in a nearby hotel is already in the company’s budgets for location shooting, but the team has been running the numbers on what else will be needed. Yale’s head of production Jon Keeyes says he anticipates additive costs of “$5,000 to $7,500 a week” for thermometers, sanitizing equipment, masks and gloves, an on-site medic and an additional PA in charge of cleaning. Those numbers do not include testing, which the company considers crucial.

Keeyes has been in touch with the Alabama film office, as well as the one in Birmingham. The company expects to go back into pre-production on “Castle Falls” in June, begin filming in July and then start another movie right after that with the same crew. “Obviously, that is predicated on the idea that everyone stays safe and healthy as we move forward, and we don’t see spikes” of people getting sick, Keeyes says.

good to see it's still in the cards for the producer (if Adkins can [and want to] fly to the US).
I'm wondering if Dolph used Jan-Michael Losada as DoP :?:
