'Mission: Impossible 7' Halted Due To Coronavirus

Production on the next installment of Mission: Impossible 7 has been halted as the coronavirus continues to spread.

Deadline reports that production for the seventh film in the franchise starring Tom Cruise has been postponed for the moment due to the reported 219 cases in the country.

Venice’s local government has actually put a stop to all public gatherings, closed all schools and museums and even brought an early stop to the Venice carnival.

Mission: Impossible 7 was set to film in Venice for three weeks before moving onto other European locations.

“Out of an abundance of caution for the safety and well-being of our cast and crew, and efforts of the local Venetian government to halt public gatherings in response to the threat of coronavirus, we are altering the production plan for our three week shoot in Venice, the scheduled first leg of an extensive production for Mission: Impossible 7,” Paramount Pictures released in their statement. “During this hiatus we want to be mindful of the concerns of the crew and are allowing them to return home until production starts. We will continue to monitor this situation, and work alongside health and government officials as it evolves.”

This other big budget movie’s premiere was cancelled in China due to the coronavirus outbreak.
