Hollywood actors Zendaya and John David Washington star in one of the first movies shot and completed during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. 

23-year-old Zendaya and 35-year-old Washington star in Malcolm & Marie, which was written and directed by Sam Levison.

Filming reportedly took place between June 17 and July 2 at Caterpillar House, an environmentally friendly home in Carmel Valley, California.

The movie was approved by major entertainment industry unions and followed all the coronavirus safety protocols put in place by the state of California, according to Deadline.

Zendaya, who stars in HBO's acclaimed drama Euphoria, which was created by Levison, confirmed Malcolm & Marie's existence on Instagram.

She shared a black-and-white still of her and Washington, star of Christopher Nolan's upcoming blockbuster Tenet, along with the film's title.

Rapper Kid Cudi is listed as an executive producer and tweeted: "Really excited about this!!"

Malcolm & Marie, which has reportedly finished production, would appear to be the first feature film to be made since the industry was put on hold in March. Levinson reportedly wrote the feature film in six days.

California has made tentative steps to emerge from lockdown, though parts of the state have reversed course in response to surging numbers of coronavirus cases.

Production was helped by the fact it was legal to shoot on private property in Monterey County, while an extensive list of health and safety measures was reportedly in place.

They included a maximum of 12 people on set at any one time, temperature checks at the beginning and end of every day and extra time allowed to sanitise equipment.

No release date has been announced.
