Robert Pattinson Tests Positive for Coronavirus, Halting ‘The Batman’ Production
Robert Pattinson has tested positive for coronavirus, prompting “The Batman” to suspend filming in the United Kingdom days after it went back into production, according to a source familiar with the situation.
Warner Bros. confirmed earlier on Thursday that production was being halted after a crew member tested positive but did not confirm the person’s identity. Vanity Fair first reported that Pattinson was the one who had coronavirus.
“A member of ‘The Batman’ production has tested positive for COVID-19 and is isolating in accordance with established protocols,” a Warner Bros. spokesperson said in a statement. “Filming is temporarily paused.”
The studio declined to comment about whether or not Pattinson had contracted the virus; a representative for the actor did not immediately respond to request for comment.
