The 29-year-old actor Ezra Miller, who joins the 'IT' director Andy Muschietti to play the role of the fastest man on the planet Flash, an alter ego of Barry Allen, in the upcoming superhero blockbuster The Flash, producer Barbara Muschiettie has revealed that the team working on the production of the film had to once again start all over again after the Coronavirus Pandemic and how it impacted the film in a major way. "We prepared a lot and we were ready to go because we're really good planners, and then a global pandemic hit, and then all the plans went to the toilet and we had to start again," Muschietti explained at the DC FanDome.
The 49-year-old Muschiettie went on to say that the cast and the crew of the film had no idea what was going to happen in the future when the Coronavirus Pandemic stalled the production of the film but it didn't take away anything from the team working on the project as they were all excited to make the movie possible. "The first part of the process was truly seeing how we were gonna keep everything together and had no parameters because no one knew what was going to happen. But we were all absolutely excited to make this movie and we all stuck together, Ezra, Andy, I, our team, it basically meant that we had to wait for about six months. We had more time to prep in a way, got the script to a better place which is always fantastic, and then we started shooting in April. It's been a non-stop, crazy adventure because Covid doesn't make things easy. But we're all so fortunate to be working and healthy," she explained.
She further added by revealing that the cast and crew were so much inspired by the duo Miller and Serkis as they were so energetic all the time. "We haven't shut down the movie, we've been extremely lucky. It's luck. That's how we prepared it, with a lot of luck. And also, Ezra and Andy together have more energy than any human pair I've ever met (laughs). They've kept us all going basically when things were hard because they are hard in the world we're living. They just inspired us and kept us going, and we're almost there at the finish line," she further added.
