Simon Pegg and Pom Klementieff enjoy a break from filming Mission Impossible 7 as they shoot amateur video in Venice

They are starring alongside each other in the upcoming blockbuster Mission Impossible 7.

And Simon Pegg and Pom Klementieff looked in good spirits as they enjoyed a break from filming in Venice, Italy on Monday.

The actors appeared to be making videos with their phones as Simon, 50, could be seen filming his co-star, 34, reading a newspaper and blowing a kiss.

At one point, French beauty Pom appeared to run through a flock of birds while Simon also filmed her as she pretended to fall over.

The actress cut a trendy figure for the day, donning a purple and red short-sleeved tartan dress with a white collar. 

In keeping with her vintage look, Pom wore her locks in a flip style and she also sported a black headband.

Wearing a pair of black sunglasses, the actress completed her outfit with matching kitten heels.

Simon kept it casual for the day, wearing a blue T-shirt and green tracksuit bottoms as he filmed the star on his phone.  

Earlier this month, Simon’s co-star Tom Cruise held crisis talks with Mission Impossible 7 director Christopher McQuarrie days after 12 people on set reportedly tested positive for COVID-19. Filming has since resumed.

Health chiefs were said to be tracing the contacts of those who tested positive after filming was suspended, dashing hopes it was an isolated case.

It appeared to be yet another blow for the action movie franchise after filming was suspended earlier this year during the first European wave of coronavirus when cases rose sharply in Italy.

The actor and the director, who worked together on previous Mission Impossible movies and Jack Reacher, were deep in conversation at their luxury base in the city, days after the situation came to light, but filming has now been allowed to continue with production restarting on Monday.

In October, The Sun reported 150 extras for the film were informed they were not to come in to shoot scenes that were on the filming schedule for the evening.

While no official reason was given for the sudden decision, it was claimed a coronavirus test had come back positive from the production so filming needed to be suspended temporarily.

A source speaking to the publication claimed: ‘There are about 150 extras involved in the filming and late on Thursday they were all told not to turn up for work and they would be notified when they would be allowed back on set.

‘No official reason has been given but it’s feared it’s down to COVID and this will be the second time the production has been hit because of the virus.’

Crew also urged members of the public to remain socially distanced from one another as they waited to see the stars, while Tom and director Christopher are also said to have made the request.
