The filming of the new Mission: Impossible movie, the 7th in the scheme, seems to have become an impossible mission, as it has now been stopped due to the coronavirus outbreak.
Movie star Tom Cruise and the rest of the production team have been forced to halt the filming of the movie in Italy after the quick spread of the killer virus these last days. The Paramount Film Studio has decided to bring the actors and the rest of the crew to the US, according to the Independent.
The plan was to film the leading movie star in Venice, as he took a gondola through the city’s old canals.
“We will continue to monitor this situation and work with the authorities,” representatives for the Paramount Film Studio write in a statement.
According to the Daily Mail, no one in the production should have been infected. The film is directed by Christopher McQuarrie and was planned to premiere next summer, but with this interruption, it could be delayed.
The filming is postponed indefinitely and everyone involved is now waiting for a decision on the future of the film.
