It's not the only major production to be halted due to the outbreak of novel coronavirus.

Last month, the shooting of the new Mission: Impossible movie was axed in Venice, after the virus took hold in the Veneto and Lombardy regions of Italy.

The Paramount studio said that it was exercising 'an abundance of caution' in suspending the shoot at the time.

The whole of Italy is currently locked down, with most travel now banned and cases of the virus now topping 10,000.
