By Stephen Ippolito | July 1st, 2020

Earlier today, we got word that The Falcon and Winter Soldier is looking to restart production in the Fall. Now a new report by Deadline, says another Marvel Studios production is aiming to restart soon.

According to Deadline, the studio is looking to restart shooting for the film Shang-Chi And The Legend Of The Ten Rings in late July. Filming will occur in Australia, which is the same place it had been shooting in February and March.

The online outlet also reported that Marvel Studios is going to take “careful steps” in making sure no one will be at risk. When cast and crew members travel to Australia, they will be quarantined upon arrival per the country’s guidance. Back in March, production was shut down when the film’s director Destin Daniel Cretton self-isolated himself and got tested. Thankful, his test came back negative.

Originally the film starring Simu Liu, Awkwafina, and Tony Leung as the Mandarin was scheduled to come out on February 12, 2021. However, it was pushed back to May 7, 2021, after the studio shifted nearly it’s entire Phase 4 slate.
