French Terror Attack Film Postpones Release

1 minute read

A French distributor has canceled plans to release the film Made in France about terrorism in Paris in light of the attacks that left at least 129 dead on Friday.

The film follows a Muslim journalist who infiltrates a Jihadi group to uncover a terrorist plot against Paris. The movie was set to open on Wednesday on about 100 screens.

“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,” the filmmakers said in a statement to Deadline. The film was already postponed once this year after the shootings at the offices for satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo in Paris.

The film producers also said they would change their campaign. The controversial poster for the film features an AK-47 assault rifle superimposed on the Eiffel Tower and the tagline “the threat comes from inside.”
