COVID-19 Virus -- Movie related news
 
https://deadline.com/2020/03/tom-han...ie-1202880431/

EXCLUSIVE: We have just received word that Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson were tested positive for the Coronavirus. Both were down in Australia for the pre-production of Baz Luhrmann’s untitled Elvis Presley film from Warner Bros. In the film, two-time Oscar winner Hanks plays Presley’s longtime manager Colonel Tom Parker.

Deadline received a statement directly from Hanks:

“Hello, folks. Rita and I are down here in Australia. We felt a bit tired, like we had colds, and some body aches. Rita had some chills that came and went. Slight fevers too. To play things right, as is needed in the world right now, we were tested for the Coronavirus, and were found to be positive.

Well, now. What to do next? The Medical Officials have protocols that must be followed. We Hanks’ will be tested, observed, and isolated for as long as public health and safety requires. Not much more to it than a one-day-at-a-time approach, no?

We’ll keep the world posted and updated.

Take care of yourselves!” – Tom Hanks

Tom Hanks has coronavirus. Head for those nuclear fallout shelters now!
 
Just being reported. They say even seeing his new movies will give it to you. Look out. Also, wife. We are all doomed!

Shitty, he's in a more vulnerable age range and diabetic, hopefully he's in that 80% safe zone.

Peter Rabbit II delayed also :(

He's survived WWII twice, fought somali pirates, landed a plane in the Hudson and successfully brought a damaged space craft back home. He'll be fine.

He should be quarantined on an island with a volleyball.

(You forgot to mention he had HIV.)

I can't believe that Disney isn't delaying the premier of Mulan. As much as they are counting on the Chinese market and as much is riding on this film I'm surprised they are going ahead with it. Maybe it was too late and they didn't want to respend the money on marketing?

Someone mentioned it in the Covid 19 thread when I made the same joke :D

CinemaCon in Las Vegas was just cancelled.

It's not a public con for those who don't know what it is. It's the studios exhibiting their high profile movie titles for the upcoming year to theatre owners. It's a pretty huge event.

On a related note, Hanks' former Bosom Buddies co-star Peter Scolari reports that he's come down with symptoms of the common cold.

Maybe we could add a wiki to this thread so all the delays can be listed at the top?

I imagine Hollywood celebrities, due to the amount of travel they do, are at a much greater risk of catching the bug than the average American. They also tend to be healthier and have better health care than the average American, too.

The F9 year delay probably won't be good for it. Someone in the F9 thread stated Aug 2020 would be better. As Guardians of the Galaxy has proved there is plenty of time to reap great box office in that month. Should have went that route.

Movie related news about the coronavirus? Will this be in 3D? A Michael Bay hack job?
