Robert Pattinson has reportedly tested positive for coronavirus just days after his upcoming movie The Batman resumed shooting.
Warner Bros confirmed filming is temporarily shut down and a member of the production team is self-isolating.
“A member of The Batman production has tested positive for Covid-19, and is isolating in accordance with established protocols,” a spokeswoman for the studios said.
“Filming is temporarily paused.”
The studio, however did not reveal which member of the cast has tested positive or indicate when filming would resume.
However, a number of publications, including Variety and The Hollywood Reporter, confirmed that the person who tested positive was Robert Pattinson, the films lead star.
The 34-year-old will reportedly self-isolate for two weeks before filming for ‘The Batman’ resumes.
