It's understood that the movie will cost $19.99 (£15.16) to rent for 48 hours and will then reportedly be available to watch on a major streaming service at some point in 2021.

The film, which was produced by Bay - of Armageddon (1998) and Pearl Harbor fame - is set in 2024, and will depict the world in its fourth year of lockdown, as it struggles to cope with Covid-23 - a mutation which, with a 50 percent mortality rate, is now much more dangerous.

Sounds cheery, doesn't it?

Riverdale's KJ Apa stars as Nico - a man who has Covid immunity, so spends his days dropping off deliveries and supplies around the city.

During the course of the movie, Nico finds love with Sara (played by Sofia Carson) - a woman he hasn't actually met due to the strict lockdown rules.

Apa told Entertainment Weekly: "We were kind of trepidatious, but still very much amped and excited to get to work.

"It was really eerie, but the way we shot was every actor's dream."

For anyone concerned that the movie might be just a little bit too bleak, Carson said: "Even though this is the pandemic thriller and it's suspenseful and terrifying, the heart of the story is hope.
