LOS ANGELES — US actor Tom Hanks said on Tuesday that Hollywood has "no idea" when it can return to production, as he described his own recovery after contracting the coronavirus, which has shut down the movie industry.

The Forrest Gump and Philadelphia Oscar-winner in March became the first high-profile star to come down with COVID-19, shortly before he was due to begin shooting an Elvis Presley biopic in Australia.

"As the canaries in the coal mine for the COVID-19 experience, we are fine — we had about 10 days of very uncomfortable symptoms, not life-threatening, I'm happy to say," he told a virtual press conference.

Hanks said that he and his wife Rita Wilson were fortunate to be "model recoverers from COVID-19," but noted that "any number of things" could have gone wrong.

With the virus rampaging across the US — which has recorded more than 126,000 deaths and 2.6 million cases — many states have been criticised for reopening too early.

California gave the all-clear for filming to resume earlier this month, but most major Hollywood productions remain frozen — a situation Hanks does not expect to change soon.

"I have no idea when I will go back to work," he said. "Nobody has any idea of when they will go back to work.

"But the time will come. We just don't know when."

He added: "Everything comes into play — there's financial concerns, there's legal concerns, liabilities."

"There's physical concerns about 'how does everybody get to work and go into the same soundstage, and work in such close quarters?'" AFP
