The shooting of award-wining Tv series ‘Mission Impossible ‘ part 7, has being temporarily stopped, following reports of its crew tested positive to the COVID-19.
Mission: Impossible is a series of American action spy films based on and a follow-on from the television series of the same name created by Bruce Geller. The series is mainly produced by and stars Tom Cruise, whose character is Ethan Hunt, an agent of the Impossible Missions Force (IMF).
The series has received a positive reception from critics and audiences alike, and is the 16th-highest-grossing film series of all time, with a worldwide gross of over $3.5 billion to date, and is often cited as one of the best action franchises to date.
The film which is scheduled to be released in 2022, has been faced by a number of Covid-19 influenced delays. In February 2020, production shut down due to the pandemic. Tom Cruise later made headlines for berating crew members for refusing to follow Covid-19 safety guidelines on set.
According to a statement released by the production, filming of ‘Mission Impossible 7’ has been paused in the United Kingdom for 14 days.
The statement reads;
“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,”
