‘Made in France’ release postponed following attacks in Paris
The distributor of “Made in France,” a drama about a French journalist who follows a group of radical jihadists intent on creating trouble in Paris, has pulled the release of the movie in France following Friday’s terrorist attacks in the French capital.
Pretty Pictures, the movie’s French distributor, said on its official website that the release of “Made in France” had been “postponed” but didn’t provide additional detail.
The movie had been scheduled to open on French screens on Wednesday.
A poster for the movie depicts the Eiffel Tower in the shape of an assault weapon.
The movie website Le Film Français has reported that posters for the film are being pulled from the Paris public transportation system and that other promotional efforts are being canceled.
Deadline reported that Pretty Pictures chief James Velaise said the promotional campaign for the movie would be changed.
An estimated 129 people were killed in Paris on Friday in what is believed to have been a coordinated terrorist attack targeting several points throughout the city, including the Bataclan concert hall in the city’s 11th arrondissement and the Stade de France.
