Making this movie really is becoming a mission impossible.

The seventh installment of 'Mission Impossible' has been forced to hit pause on filming - yet again.

At least one member of the production tested positive for coronavirus, reports THR, though the exact number of people who have contracted the virus is unclear.

The shoot of the movie will shut down for 14 days while those involved self-isolate.

A statement from the production reads: "We have temporarily halted production on Mission: Impossible 7 until June 14th, due to positive coronavirus test results during routine testing.

"We are following all safety protocols and will continue to monitor the situation."

The news comes a few months after star of the franchise Tom Cruise went ballistic on set after he saw two crew members not social distancing.

The actor reportedly rented out a cruise ship to enable the case and crew to socially distance.

The filming of 'Mission Impossible 7' was one of many productions delayed by the coronavirus pandemic last year.

The shoot began in February 2020, then halted mid-March.

Filming took place in London and Norway in July and August of last year. However a motorcycle accident also caused delays.

In October 2020, production was halted for a week in Italy after 12 people tested positive for COVID-19 on set.

A decision was recently made to not shoot the seventh and eighth installments of the 'Mission Impossible' franchise back to back.

'Mission Impossible 7' is set to hit cinemas on May 27, 2022.
