According to Papamichael, the movies’ need for period-specific settings and costuming were proving a challenge with the current coronavirus restrictions, forcing it to be postponed. “I don’t think it’s dead, but it’s a tough one to pull off in a Covid-era because it’s all in small clubs with lots of extras in period costumes so you’ve got lots of hair and makeup,” he said in an interview with Collider.

Dylan is currently working with George Clooney on a film adaptation of the baseball-themed book Calico Joe by John Grisham.
