Jurassic World: Dominion cast film scenes before production is HALTED after ...

Jurassic World: Dominion has been forced to halt filming for two weeks after 'a few' members of the crew tested positive for COVID-19.

Yet before production on the movie came to a standstill, the cast were pictured filming scenes, with Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard cuddled up as the cameras rolled, on Saturday.

Sam Neill and Laura Dern were seen putting on an even cosier display as they locked lips while standing behind one of the movie's iconic trucks.

Jeff Goldblum appeared to be focused as he chatted to his fellow castmates on set, including newcomer Mamoudou Athie. 

On Wednesday, the film's director Colin Trevorrow confirmed production had been paused after 'a few' positive tests, but added that the delay was simply a precaution as those who were infected tested negative 'shortly after.'

The delay comes just days after it was revealed the much-anticipated sequel had been pushed back by a whole year to June 10, 2022, as film releases continue to be delayed by the coronavirus pandemic.

Colin tweeted: 'Woke up to the news we had a few positive Coronavirus tests on Jurassic World: Dominion. 

'All tested negative shortly after, but due to our safety protocols we're going to pause for two weeks. Back soon.'

However Colin seemed to find the humorous side in the delay, as he shared a snap of a dinosaur wearing a face mask.

A Universal Pictures spokesperson told MailOnline: 'Late last night, we were informed that the Jurassic World: Dominion production experienced a small amount of positive tests for COVID-19. 

'Even though subsequent tests proved negative this morning, due to our rigid protocols and to ensure that the safety and well-being of our entire cast and crew is paramount at all times, those who initially tested positive are currently self-isolating, as are those who they have come into contact with. 

'As a result filming has been temporarily paused and will resume in accordance with established safety guidelines.'
