The code-named movies “Mission Ice Cream” and “Girona” shut down in Germany just prior to shooting this month due to the corona virus.
Both films were scheduled to start principal photography at Studio Babelberg in Germany, leaving the film crews on both films in the financial lurch.
According to TechZimo, “Mission Ice Cream” (actually the fourth sequel to The Matrix) and “Girona” (real title “Uncharted”) are shooting in Germany to take advantage of the €25 million ($27.55 million) and €21.15 million ($23.31 million), respectively, tax rebates from the German Federal Movie Fund initiative.
The film crews have organized and are seeking compensation from both the studio and/or from the German government to cover their lost wages due to the shut down.
Success is, at present, unknown.
