Mickey Rourke has wrapped up production on his upcoming horror movie that was filming in Latvia.
The flick, called Warhunt, was one of the only things still in production amid the coronavirus pandemic. However, production was under strict conditions.
Variety reports that conditions included “having to don face masks and gloves, having their temperature taken twice a day, social distancing, and disinfecting equipment.”
Yu-Fai Suen, one of the producers, shared with the paper that Mickey flew in just ahead of the country’s borders closing.
“We had to rearrange the schedule for Mickey Rourke as the country was closing its borders, and luckily he agreed to fly early to beat the closure, and we rescheduled his shoot days to accommodate this change,” he shared.
Director Mauro Borrelli added that the experience was “surreal at the beginning, but the cast and crew quickly adjusted to the masks and other precautions, so we ended up even more focused and efficient.”
Warhunt will follow an elite squad of American soldiers on a secret mission during World War II. Trapped behind enemy lines in Germany’s Black Forest, the men are confronted by a coven of witches.
