The biopic began production on Australia's Gold Coast in late January, but was halted in March when both Tom and his wife Rita Wilson tested positive for coronavirus. After the pair fully recovered from the virus in Australia, they returned to Los Angeles in late March, where they then continued to self-isolate.
