Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly’s movie shuts down due to COVID-19 cases

COVID-19 has caused another snag for Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly in their first film together.

Production for the lovebirds’ “Midnight in the Switchgrass” was shut down again after two people involved in the project tested positive for for the illness, TMZ reported on Monday.

The movie was previously shut down at the beginning of the pandemic, but the cast and crew returned to Puerto Rico in July to finish the film, directed by Randall Emmett.

A rep for production declined to comment, but a source close to production told Page Six on Monday that filming is going “as smooth as silk” with only three days left.

“No actual covid cases came while filming,” the source claimed. “Before they started up again everyone followed strict protocols for safety and production was moved to Santa Barbara.”

The crime thriller film features Fox and Bruce Willis playing FBI agents who are attempting to bust a sex-trafficking ring when their investigation becomes intertwined with the path of a serial killer in Texas. It was not clear what role Kelly will be playing.

Page Six first reported that Fox, 34, and Kelly, 30, met on set around the time that she split from her husband, Brian Austin Green.

The couple became Instagram official in July — and Kelly says they’re already “locked in forever.”
