The recent outbreak of the Coronavirus (Covid-19), is affecting everyone, including Hollywood.
Just on Wednesday (12 March), Tom Hanks announced he and wife Rita Wilson had tested positive for the Coronavirus, while in production in Australia for Baz Luhrmann’s Elvis Presley biopic. The news got The Warner Bros. film to shut down immediately for the safety of the cast and crews.
More and more movie production and releases have been postponed due to the virus.
Here’s a few of the ones that have come to a pause so far.
The highly anticipated Disney film has been postponed amid growing concerns over coronavirus. The live-action remake was scheduled to hit theaters on 27 March. No new date has been announced.

‘Fast & Furious 9’
The film has pushed its release date by a year due to Covid-19. Vin Diesel made the announcement on social media saying “We feel all the love and the anticipation you have for the next chapter in our saga.” “That’s why it’s especially tough to let you know that we have to move the release date of the film. It’s become clear that it won’t be possible for all of our fans around the world to see the film this May,” Diesel added “While we know there is disappointment in having to wait a little while longer, this move is made with the safety of everyone as our foremost consideration.” “Fast 9” is now scheduled to open globally in April 2021.
