This image released by Lionsgate shows co-writer/directors Christopher Renz, left, and Gerard Bush on the set of "Antebellum." Filmmakers Bush and Renz planned to release their feature-length debut film, “Antebellum,” in the spring of 2020, just as the coronavirus pandemic exploded internationally.
