‘Mission: Impossible 7’ halts production after stars test for positive COVID-19


The production for the movie, ‘Mission: Impossible 7’ has been shut down after some undisclosed members of the crew contracted COVID-19.

This comes months after movie star, Tom Cruise, was captured on camera rebuking crew members for violating social distancing protocols.

CNN reported that Paramount, which is producing the latest film in the Cruise franchise, did not reveal who among the production crew tested positive.

“We have temporarily halted production on Mission: Impossible 7 until June 14, due to positive coronavirus test results during routine testing,” the statement read.

“We are following all safety protocols and will continue to monitor the situation.”

Filming in Italy had initially been suspended in February 2020 because of the pandemic and then resumed in October.

In December, a British newspaper, The Sun obtained and published audio tapes that allegedly featured Cruise chiding two crew members who were reportedly standing within six feet of each other.

“We are the gold standard,” Cruise can be heard saying in the audio recording The Sun reported as being him.

“They’re back there in Hollywood making movies right now because of us! Because they believe in us and what we’re doing.”

The film is scheduled for release in May 2022.
