Robert Pattinson has reportedly tested positive for COVID-19, forcing filming on The to be halted.

Sources told Vanity Fair that the actor, 34, has contracted the deadly virus just days after production resumed on the big-budget film.  

It comes after MailOnline revealed that filming of the new film has been paused after a crew member tested positive for Covid-19.

In a statement Warner Bros. told the publication: 'A member of The production has tested positive for Covid-19, and is isolating in accordance with established protocols. Filming is temporarily paused.'

Further sources then claimed that the person in question was Robert, meaning he will have to quarantine for two weeks before work on the film can continue.

MailOnline has contacted representatives for Robert Pattinson and Warner Bros. for further comment.

It comes after MailOnline exclusively revealed that production on The had been thrown into chaos after a member of the team tested positive for coronavirus. 

Sources on the £100million blockbuster set said the cast and crew had been sent home after one of the team was struck by the virus. 

An insider at the studio in Leavesden said: 'We have been sent a memo telling us that a member of the crew has had a positive Covid-19 test.

'Everyone was talking on the set about it. We do not know who has tested positive, but it has caused chaos to the schedule.'

Filming of The had only resumed three days ago after being shut down in early March due to the pandemic.

Production crews had gathered at the studios in Leavesden, Hertfordshire, in August to work on sets after most had been placed on furlough.

The shutdown will cost Warner Bros hundreds of thousands of pounds and possibly even delay the release of the movie which is said to be a grittier take on the DC comic book hero.
