Julia Roberts & George Clooney Flee Australia After Crew On New Film Started 'Dropping Like Flies' Amid Outbreak
Julia Roberts & George Clooney’s new film Ticket to Paradise was shut down and the Hollywood stars were forced to leave Australia amid a COVID-19 outbreak.
The 54-year-old actress and the 60-year-old actor had been filming the project for several weeks and only had 14 more days left on production.
Roberts and Clooney were flown out of Australia and back to their homes while the producers figure out the next step. They believe the set will be closed down for at least 3 months as a precaution.

Roberts and Clooney have yet to be photographed back in the states nor have they commented on their film suffering a huge setback. The film currently has a tentative release date of October 2022.
