Tom Cruise flees Italy over coronavirus fears on the set of Mission: Impossible 7 film set with the the impact on the film's release currently unknown.
Hollywood star Tom Cruise has reportedly fled Italy over coronavirus fears - as he abandoned the Mission Impossible film set.
The 57-year-old action superstar was allegedly forced to evacuate filming for Mission: Impossible 7 due to Venice being deemed a high-risk area by authorities.
A source told The Sun: "There have been meetings with officials but they’re clear that, as far as they are concerned, there is a serious risk in the area, especially where large numbers are gathered — and this is a huge set."
Despite the huge expense to the evacuation, it's claimed there was a decision to withdraw the film from Venice with the biggest names being shipped out as quickly as possible.
