Filming on the latest Mission: Impossible movie in Italy has been paused due to concerns about the outbreak of coronavirus in the country.
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's sixth and latest flick Mission: Impossible - Fallout has proved to be a big winner for Viacom, which has reported a 5% rise in quarterly revenue, compared with the previous quarter.
Total revenues rose to $3.49bn, from $3.32bn in the same period in the previous year.
While sequels don't always do that well, critics were raving about the film when it came out in July. Variety said that the film was "the most exciting and ambitious" of the entire franchise.
