Following the death of 27-year-old actor Anton Yelchin in an auto accident on Saturday, the greatest thoughts go to his family and friends. Paramount, the studio which is releasing his next film, Star Trek: Beyond, is thinking in kind. The cast of the film was due at the Cannes Lions advertising exhibition on Wednesday for a Q&A, but those plans have now been canceled.
This is Paramount’s statement:
All of us are deeply saddened by the loss of our friend Anton Yelchin. Out of respect, we are withdrawing our participation in the previously announced Star Trek Beyond event at Cannes Lions this week.
Here at the Cine Europe event in Barcelona it was a sober reminder this morning to see giant Star Trek: Beyond displays lining the hallways with Yelchin prominent.
