The cast and crew had been in the Czech Republic capital since Friday and filming was intended to last roughly one week. As of yesterday, March 10, everyone was called back to Atlanta.
Prague had already closed schools and implemented restrictions on travel prior to the decision to shut down The Falcon and the Winter Soldier production. It remains to be seen if the cast and crew will return to proceed with the shoot. Filming for Marvel‘s anticipated Disney+ show is predominantly taking place in Atlanta.
This isn’t the first time The Falcon and the Winter Soldier production has experienced an interruption, however. The show was scheduled to film in Puerto Rico in January but was unable to do so due to a 6.4 magnitude earthquake along the southern coast.
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier is a spinoff from the Captain America and Avengers films, starring Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan as the titular characters. It is due to premiere on Disney+ in August.
