Moonfall is a US$136-million independent production financed by the Swiss and Los Angeles-based company SPG3 Entertainment and Emmerich’s company, Centropolis Entertainment. It stars Halle Berry, Patrick Wilson, Stanley Tucci, John Bradley, Donald Sutherland and Charlie Plummer. The story is about what happens when the moon is knocked out of its orbit around the Earth and is speeding toward our planet.
There isn’t much free studio space available in Montreal right now, said MELS president Martin Carrier. Home Alone is shooting at MELS while most of Moonfall is being shot at the MTL Grandé studios.
“We’re running on all cylinders,” Carrier said.
And so far, the industry has managed to restart without any major COVID-19 outbreaks on sets.
