He is back at work after production for Across the River and into the Trees has started in Italy amid the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.

And Liev Schreiber was seen shooting exciting scenes for the upcoming film adaptation of Ernest Hemingway’s novel on a speedboat in Venice on Friday.

Liev, who plays Colonel Richard Cantwell in the film, sported a neatly-trimmed moustache and wore a pair of round glasses as he fully embodied the character. 

In between takes, he put safety first amid the Covid-19 pandemic, wearing a white mask as he wandered down the streets of the Italian city alongside crew members.

While speeding down the river on a boat during shooting, the actor was also joined by two crew members, who kept themselves protected with face masks. 

Liev’s latest film is set during the final days of WWII and sees his character grapple with physical and emotional damage from the previous war, as well as a whirlwind romance with a younger woman.

The film is based on the Ernest Hemingway’s 1950 novel of the same name, which was his last novel published before his death. 

Reactions at the time were overwhelmingly negative, though modern critics view the novel more favourably.

The production team is taking all the necessary COVID-19 precautions – as Italy was the first country to stop filming and go into lockdown – which included getting multiple swab tests before and during the stay.

The TV star has been thrilled to be on location in what he calls, ‘arguably the most beautiful city in the world (next to NYC of course)’.
