However, he was still isolating himself from other people and it was unclear about his current location.

Meanwhile, Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson, last week, also broke the Internet as they announced that they got the disease while shooting for their upcoming film in Australia.

For those who are unversed, the announcement of Elba led to the halting of several movie productions across the world. On Monday, the giant film studio Warner Bros stated that they had to stop the filming schedule of the 4th installment of Matrix franchise and also Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them 3 which is a spinoff of the iconic Harry Potter series.

According to Variety, the film Matrix would film in Germany while Fantastic Beasts was all set to go on the floor.

Not only Warner Bros, other big-name production houses like Universal Pictures, Disney and Netflix Inc had to halt the production of mostly live-action television shows also because of the complicated development of COVID-19.
