WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Concerns over the coronavirus mean filming in Wilmington is on hold.

The Lost Boys will be on hiatus until further notice. The pilot is a reboot for the CW of the 1980s movie of the same name. Cameras only started rolling a few weeks ago.

According to a post from TW Cast & Recruit, the company that handles extras casting for the production, it’s unclear when the production will restart.

The post on Monday morning also stated that This Country, a FOX pilot filming in Wilmington, will continue work on the show “since it is a very small production, with a minimal footprint (thanks to the mock-umentary style of filming). We are rearranging the schedule and will continue straight through with filming today through this Sunday."

However, as of Monday evening, there were reports that This Country also stopped production.

Across the country, many other productions have announced work stoppages due to the outbreak.
