The filming in Venice of the tape “Mission: Impossible 7” was suspended on Monday due to the expansion of the Covid-19 coronavirus in Italy
Luca Zaia, the president of the Italian region of Veneto where the city of canals is located, said Sunday that, according to the Minister of Health, Roberto Speranza, “all public and private events have been canceled and it has been arranged the closure of schools and museums until March 1, including the Venice’s Carnival“.
Deadline confirmed Monday that the filming of “Mission: Impossible 7” has also been affected by this measure.
The Italian authorities have indicated that the coronavirus Covid-19 has so far left seven dead and 231 people infected in the country.
The plans of Paramount for this new film of “Mission: Impossible” included three weeks of recording in Venice, which now remain on the air until the coronavirus crisis is cleared and resolved.
Christopher McQuarrie, who took over “Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation” (2015) and “Mission: Impossible – Fallout” (2018), will direct this seventh installment, which will be released in 2021, and also the eighth film, which will arrive to the cinemas in 2022.
Neither of these two tapes has a confirmed title for now.
Although the British tabloid Daily Mail stated that Tom cruise had had to stay indefinitely in a five-star hotel in Venice because of the expansion of the coronavirus, Deadline rejected that information and assured that the actor had not reached Italy when filming was suspended.
The six films of “Mission: Impossible” to date raised worldwide more than 3.5 billion dollars.
In “Mission: Impossible 7” the actors will participate, together with Tom Cruise, Rebecca Ferguson, Nicholas Hoult, Vanessa Kirby Y Simon Pegg.
