LOS ANGELES — British actor Robert Pattinson has tested positive for COVID-19, causing production in Britain on the set of his film “The Batman” to pause, Vanity Fair and the Hollywood Reporter reported on Thursday.

Warner Bros., the Hollywood studio behind the movie, said in a statement that “a member of ‘The Batman’ production” had tested positive for the coronavirus, but did not give a name. “Filming is temporarily paused,” the Warner Bros. statement added.

Filming of “The Batman” had resumed in Leavesden north of London only three days ago after being shut down in mid-March, along with dozens of other movies and TV shows around the world due to the pandemic.

The movie, in which the Pattinson, 34, stars as the comic book hero, has about three months of material left to shoot, according to Hollywood trade outlets. Its release was pushed back earlier this year from June 2021 to October 2021.
