Fox has cancelled the Paris premiere of Steven Spielberg's Cold War thriller "Bridge of Spies" in the wake of Friday’s terrorist attacks in the French capital, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The director was reportedly on his way from Berlin to Paris to debut the film when the tragedy struck. French president Francois Hollande has closed the country’s borders and declared a state of emergency after over 150 people were killed in coordinated attacks across the city.
"In light of the tragedy in Paris, we have canceled our scheduled film events,” Fox said in a statement to THR. “Further, we stand with the people of Paris and our thoughts go out to all those affected by these horrible events.”
One of the attack sites was the Bataclan concert hall, where patrons at an Eagles of Death Metal show were taken hostage. Police ended the assault after storming the venue, according to CNN, who reported that two attackers were killed, but around 100 people were left dead at the hall.
"Bridge of Spies" star Austin Stowell tweeted his condolences to the victims of the attacks on Friday.
“My thoughts are with the family and friends of those who were wrongfully slain today in Paris,” the 30-year-old actor wrote.
