Paramount Delays Mission: Impossible 7 Production Due to Coronavirus

Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol

Production on Mission: Impossible 7 has been delayed for now due to growing fears about the Coronavirus in Venice, Italy. Italy has had the most cases outside of Asia with over 150 people testing positive for the virus (including three people in Venice).

The Venetian government has been pushing to stop public gatherings in hopes of curbing the spread of the virus, and that led Paramount to delay production.

“Out of an abundance of caution for the safety and well-being of our cast and crew, and efforts of the local Venetian government to halt public gatherings in response to the threat of coronavirus, we are altering the production plan for our three week shoot in Venice, the scheduled first leg of an extensive production for ‘Mission: Impossible 7,’” Paramount said. “During this hiatus we want to be mindful of the concerns of the crew and are allowing them to return home until production starts. We will continue to monitor this situation, and work alongside health and government officials as it evolves.”

The movie is scheduled to open on July 23rd, 2021, though it’s possible that will end up being pushed back now.
