Disney has had to temporarily suspend production on the upcoming Marvel movie, Shangh-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.  This has been done because the director, Destin Daniel Cretton, has gone into self-isolation for the Coronavirus, as he has been in Australia filming the movie and has a new born baby, so is taking extra precaution.

A note was shared to the crew:

As many of you know, Destin, our director, has a new born baby. He wanted to exercise additional caution given the current environment and decided to get tested for Covid-19 today. He is currently self-isolating under the recommendation of his doctor. While he waits for the results of the test, we are suspending 1st unit production in an abundance of caution until he gets the results this coming week. Second unit and off production will continue as normal. We will reach out to everyone by Tuesday for the latest update.  This is an unprecedented time. We appreciate everyone’s understanding as we work through this.

The movie is due to be released in theatres on February 12th  2021.
