Production on the seventh “Mission: Impossible” film has been halted in the United Kingdom following at least one member testing positive for the coronavirus.
Shooting on the Tom Cruise-led sequel will shut down for two weeks while those involved self-isolate. Presently it is unclear how many people involved in the production tested positive.
The film has had a lengthy production complicated by the pandemic with the first shut down in February 2020 just as productions across the globe began to halt.
In a statement from the production, they say: “We have temporarily halted production on Mission: Impossible 7 until June 14th, due to positive coronavirus test results during routine testing. We are following all safety protocols and will continue to monitor the situation.”
Rebecca Ferguson, Esai Morales, Hayley Atwell, Shea Whigham, Pom Klementieff and Henry Czerny star in the film which is slated for a May 27th 2022 release.
