As none of the COVID-19 infected patients were in the ‘primary pod’ which includes―leading actors, director, assistant director, and director of photography; the film resumed with production.

If on any film set, one of the members from the ‘inner circle’ gets tested corona positive then the film would definitely have to halt the shooting.

The same happened when Robert Pattinson was tested positive from the virus. He is playing the titular role in the Warner Bros. upcoming movie “The Batman”. Now, the filmi has resumed production.

When is Scream 5 releasing?

The movie is slated to release on January 14, 2022. And, and would indefinitely be able to launch on the set date as no delay further in production has taken place.
