Tom Cruise’s new Mission Impossible film has been postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak, movie studio Paramount Pictures said on Monday.
Filming was scheduled to start on Monday in Venice, where the last two days of the lagoon city’s annual carnival festival were canceled on Sunday. New cases of coronavirus exceeded 220, while Italy closed much of its rich north to stem the spread of the disease on Monday.
The 7th part of the action movie is expected to be released in July 2021, with an eighth set for 2022. Tom Cruise will reprise his role as secret agent Ethan Hunt in both movies with Christopher McQuarrie returning as director.
The studio did not say when it now expects production to start.
