Leonardo DiCaprio has returned to sets of his upcoming movie ‘Don’t Look Up’ after a brief halt in shooting due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Leonardo DiCaprio looked chilly while shooting in a Boston street for a chaotic riot scene in his upcoming political satire disaster film, ‘Don’t Look Up.’ He was photographed standing unfazed in tense circumstances with flames blazing around him.
Leonardo DiCaprio was dressed in a dark suit over a grey shirt and spectacles while observing the crew tending to the burning cars and buildings while dressed as firefighters. The shoot is taking place in the Boston area, which has been transformed into New York City for the film’s background.
‘Don’t Look Up’ follows two astronomers who are on a high-profile media tour to warn humankind of a rapidly approaching asteroid that is on its course for a massive collision with Earth. Given the storyline, Leonardo’s attire explains his look.
Besides Leonardo DiCaprio, ‘Don’t Look Up’ will also feature a large ensemble of A-list actors including Meryl Streep as President Janie Orlean, Jennifer Lawrence, Chris Evans, Jonah Hill, Cate Blanchett, Himesh Patel, Matthew Perry and Timothee Chalamet in some of the main roles. Ariana Grande, Tyler Perry, and Rob Morgan are also expected to make an appearance.
First announced in 2019, ‘Don’t Look Up’ was originally set to be distributed by Paramount Pictures but was later acquired by Netflix, earlier in 2020. ‘Don’t Look Up’ is directed by Adam McKay, who is also one of the producers and screenwriters for the film.
‘Don’t Look Up’ was earlier scheduled to start shooting from April 2020 but the onset of the pandemic pushed it to commence in November, set in and around Boston metropolitan area. ‘Don’t Look Up’ does not have a scheduled release date for now.
Leonardo DiCaprio is also working on Martin Scorsese’s new film, ‘Killer of the Flower Moon’, which will be led by Apple. ‘Don’t Look up’ and ‘Killer of the Flower Moon’ are the actor’s first works with major streaming platforms.
