Filming resumed in Paris while Montmartre was transformed for a period film in the midst of the coronavirus lockdown.

As restrictions were relaxed in France, the film crews were spotted getting back to work straight away to prepare a new film.

The crew donned face masks to ensure the safety of everyone working nearby.

Although it is not known exactly which film is made, it is believed to take place in the 1940s.

Filming was interrupted for months due to the lockout and restrictive measures taken to stop the spread of Covid-19.

An actress was seen wearing appropriate clothing for the time as camera crews followed her, and vintage cars were also spotted on the film set.

Meanwhile, many completed films have had their release dates pushed back to March, when the virus started to spread more quickly and cinemas had to close.

The delays have hit big blockbuster movies, including the James Bond movie No Time To Die, Wonder Woman 1984, Fast & Furious 9 and A Quiet Place Part 2.

Some great movies have been canceled while some, like Tom Hanks’ Greyhound, have been streamed instead on streaming services.

Candyman, the horror remake written by Jordan Peele, was originally scheduled to be released in June but has been delayed until September.
