In the last few days, there have been a lot of scary reports going around regarding notable individuals being tested for COVID-19, with Tom Hanks, Rita Wilson, Idris Elba, Olga Kurylenko, and Kristofer Hivju all sadly receiving positive results. It's created a good amount of fear all around the world, but to bring some good news into the mix, it's now been revealed that director Destin Daniel Cretton has been given the all-clear following potential exposure last week.
The Shang Chi And The Legend of The Ten Rings director has been tested for COVID-19, and today he took to Instagram to tell his fans that the results came back negative. Posting a picture of his newborn, the filmmaker wrote a long caption detailing the experience that he's had in the last few days:
Continuing, Destin Daniel Cretton added that despite all of the negativity he was seeing, there was also a positive way to look at the current global circumstances:
Following this insight into his perspective on the world while waiting for some potentially terrifying test results, the filmmaker confirmed that he doesn't have COVID-19. That being said, he fully recognizes the incredible importance of vigilance at this time – both to protect oneself and those most vulnerable in our society.
Destin Daniel Cretton closed his comment with a statement of both compassion and urgency:
As we have been in recent days, we here at CinemaBlend are wishing the best of luck to everyone both sick and simply in quarantine during these stressful times.
Hopefully it won't be too long until the world can get back to normal, and Destin Daniel Cretton can continue his extremely exciting work on the upcoming Shang Chi And The Legend of The Ten Rings, which began production shortly before the novel Coronavirus was announced as a pandemic. The movie is still currently slated to be released next year on February 12th.
