Tom Hanks' Elvis Movie Halts Production Amid His Coronavirus Diagnosis

Tom Hanks is in Australia to film the upcoming untitled Elvis Presley movie directed by Baz Luhrmann, but he just tested positive for the Coronavirus.

Production on the movie has now been suspended amid the Coronavirus outbreak.

“We have been made aware that a company member from our Elvis feature film, which is currently in pre-production in The Gold Coast, Australia, has tested positive for COVID-19 (coronavirus),” a Warner Bros. spokeperson said in a statement (via IndieWire). “We are working closely with the appropriate Australian health agencies to identify and contact anyone who may have come in direct contact with the individual. The health and safety of our company members is always our top priority, and we are taking precautions to protect everyone who works on our productions around the world. The individual who tested positive for COVID-19 is currently receiving treatment.”

While Tom‘s wife Rita Wilson has also tested positive for the virus, it’s not known if other stars from the movie – Austin Butler, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Rufus Sewell, and Olivia DeJonge – have tested positive as well.
