Mission: Impossible 7 was amidst the filming process, but has recently come to a pause after one or possibly more members of the production team received a positive COVID-19 test.
The movie was being filmed in the U.K. when it was announced that production had to temporarily stop, to allow those who tested positive to quarantine.
A Paramount Pictures representative disclosed a statement to Entertainment Weekly saying,
"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"
The news broke following a leaked recording from a few months back of producer and cast member, Tom Cruise yelling at crew members for not properly following coronavirus protocols. Cruise was angry because he spotted people standing too close together.
Back in 2020, at the beginning of the pandemic, the film also had to pause shooting, so this is not the first time they have been required to do so.
The release date for Mission: Impossible 7 has been pushed back several times, but is now May 2022.
