Tom Cruise has been forced to hole up in a luxury hotel in Venice after the filming of Mission: Impossible 7 was halted after an outbreak of coronavirus in Italy, DailyMail.com has learned.

The actor had been due to begin filming in some of the most picturesque and popular parts of the floating city but production was put in limbo after authorities put a total lockdown in place in order to stop further spread of the deadly disease.

The Hollywood star was set to take a gondola through the city’s ancient canals and stage scenes in various medieval squares that are also popular tourist sights.

Cruise, who arrived in Venice on February 20, is now stuck at the luxurious Hotel Gritti Palace, awaiting a decision on the future of the project. Initial reports indicate that no one in the cast and crew have been infected.

As of Monday night, British crew members were scheduled to return to the UK, where they’ll be tested for the virus upon arrival.

The halt on filming comes as Italy confirmed its sixth death in Europe’s first major outbreak, as the country has 219 cases of the virus – by far the largest number outside China, Japan and South Korea.
