Det var tilsyneladende under indspilningerne af Baz Luhrmanns nye Elvis film, som bliver optaget i Australien, at denne melding direkte dukkede op fra Tom Hanks himself:
“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 spiller i filmen Elvis Presleys berygtede manager Colonel Tom Parker og direkte fra Warner Bros. optagelserne har TheMovser modtaget følgende statement:
“We have been made aware that a company member from our Elvis feature film, which is currently in pre-production in The Gold Coast, Australia, has tested positive for COVID-19 (coronavirus). We are working closely with the appropriate Australian health agencies to identify and contact anyone who may have come in direct contact with the individual. The health and safety of our company members is always our top priority, and we are taking precautions to protect everyone who works on our productions around the world. The individual who tested positive for COVID-19 is currently receiving treatment.”
Tom Hanks og hans hustru Rita Wilson, mødtes for første gang på settet på serien Bosom Buddies. Parret har sammen 2 børn. Hanks har yderligere 2 børn fra tidligere ægteskab.
Billedet nedenfor er IKKE et aktuelt billede, så vogt jer for fakede efterligninger fremover. Billedet er fra hans rolle i Philadelphia fra 1993.
Baz Luhrmanns kommende Elvis film, hvor også dennes enke Priscilla Presley bla. sammen med Maggie Gyllenhaal medvirker, skulle efter planen få premiere 1. oktober 2021. Hvis alt går vel.
