Filming on the latest Mission Impossible movie in Italy has been paused due to concerns about the outbreak of coronavirus in the country.

BBC News reports shooting on the seventh film in the series was due to take place in Venice over the coming weeks.

But Paramount has halted production after Italy recorded the worst outbreak of coronavirus in Europe.

There have been more than 200 cases in the country so far, including seven deaths.

The number of cases makes Italy the third worst-hit country in the world after China and South Korea.

Tom Cruise was not in Italy for the shoot, according to The Hollywood Reporter, but the production crew were sent home.
