“Mission Impossible 7” has halted filming after at least one production member tested positive for coronavirus.
“We have temporarily halted production on ‘Mission: Impossible 7’ until June 14th, due to positive coronavirus test results during routine testing,” a Paramount spokesperson said in a statement. “We are following all safety protocols and will continue to monitor the situation.”
It is unclear exactly how many people have tested positive for the virus.
According to The Sun, star Tom Cruise is self-isolating and is allegedly “absolutely fuming about what’s happened, especially given his rant to his staff last year.”
“It’s going to badly affect filming and they’ll be playing catch-up when they finally come back,” the insider added to the outlet.
The diagnosis comes months after Cruise’s infamous and expletive-filled tirade on-set, in which he reportedly caught two crew members not following COVID-19 safety protocols.
Additionally, the production of the film, which was originally supposed to film back-to-back with its sequel, was famously cautious about filming, with Cruise once even shelling out some of his own cash to put up cast and crew members on cruise ships to avoid exposure to others.
