Other films like The Personal History of David Copperfield starring Dev Patel of Slumdog Millionaire fame and The Woman in the Window were slated for a release in the months of May and April respectively. But, now owing to the global outbreak of COVID-19, the makers of these much-awaited flicks are forced to delay the release of the films. As per the latest update, many theatres in locations of New York, New Jersey Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Washington will remain closed, amid concerns of safety of the population.
