As the world reels in reaction to the ever-expanding coronavirus and nations like Italy and Iran grind to a halt, The Prom is being called off, for now, according to Deadline. The Ryan Murphy helmed feature adaptation of the Tony-nominated stage musical has shut down production, I’ve learned. The move for the Meryl Streep and Nicole Kidman-led Netflix film comes out of “an abundance of caution,” a source close to the movie says. “No one has the coronavirus, this is just being prudent with everything that is going on around the world,” another individual with knowledge of the situation stresses. Already in the process of loading out on the Paramount lot, The Prom was set to be wrapped in the next few days. However, an on-location shoot today at a local school proved the catalyst to halting a little early. Permits were pulled due to the school in question closing its doors altogether due to coronavirus worries that have seen a number of education institutions in and around L.A shutter. In terms of The Prom, the plan right now is for work to resume in mid-April, though that could depend on the way COVID-19 spreads in the coming weeks around the world and in L.A. This will also likely impact production on Impeachment, as Murphy was set to shift from the feature to the last installment of FX’s American Crime Story franchise.
