Production of films across the world came to a halt because of the ongoing pandemic. Crews shooting in foreign locations were forced to return home as the number of cases increased across the globe. However, the crew of Warhunt, starring Mickey Rourke, continued filming in Latvia and has now wrapped up the production. 

According to a report published in The Variety, the crew shot the film in Latvia abiding by the guidelines laid by the government, which included compulsory face masks and gloves for all the crew members. The temperature of each person was tested twice a day and the crew had to disinfect the equipment before the shoot.

The unit also took several other measures to ensure social distancing like having seperate make-up kits for actors. The make-up artists also had to take extra precautions while getting the actors ready for the shots.

The director of the horror story set in World War II, Mauro Borrelli is quoted as saying, “It 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.”
