Hollywood Retreat: Premiere for Film on Paris Islamic Terror Plot Cancelled, TV Programming Reshuffled


In the aftermath of Friday’s deadly Islamic terror attacks in Paris, the entertainment industry is scrambling to reshuffle projects and premieres, including the premiere of a French film about an Islamic terrorism plot hatched in Paris, which has now been cancelled altogether.

Made in France, a film about a terrorist plot in Paris, was scheduled to debut on Wednesday; however, that premiere has been canceled, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The Pretty Pictures/Radar Films production follows a French Muslim journalist who infiltrates a terror cell in Paris to find out about a jihadist plot.

Due to the nature of the Friday’s attacks and the film’s storyline, Made in France has been postponed until further notice.

“Following the tragic events of last night, the distributor Pretty Pictures and producer Radar Films have immediately decided to postpone the release of the film to a later date,” filmmakers said in a Saturday statement to THR.

That isn’t the only project being affected by the events in Paris. In the wake of the attacks, CBS will swap out Monday’s episode of Supergirl, which centers around a bombing, with an early Thanksgiving episode, according to the Associated Press.

Additionally, Monday’s episode of NCIS: Los Angeles about young women being recruited by ISIS will be replaced with an episode about a missing woman.

Away from television, major Hollywood film studios and production company’s are also reshuffling a number of events.

Lionsgate announced the Monday premiere of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 at LA Live in Los Angeles will be scaled back, while Twentieth Century Fox has canceled its Paris premiere of the Tom Hanks/Steven Spielberg Cold War thriller Bridge of Spies.

“Out of respect for the very recent events in Paris, we have decided to modify our red carpet and we will not conduct interviews at Monday’s ‘Mockingjay 2’ premiere,” Lionsgate wrote in a statement to TheWrap on Sunday. “We will proceed with the rest of the event as planned in honor of the incredible fans who have always supported our films with such passion.”

The Paris debut of Natalie Portman’s Jane Got a Gun has also been put on hold, along with a number of promotional events for that film.

Concerts by rock bands Coldplay, Foo Fighters, and U2 have also been cancelled.

The Islamic State (ISIS) has claimed responsibility for Friday’s gun and bomb attacks, which killed more than 120 people and left more than 350 others wounded in a sequence of coordinated assaults throughout the French capital.
