UPDATE: It turns out that Time Warner sent Deadline its Warner Bros statement before Christopher Nolan had a chance to vet it. Therefore the studio has issued Deadline a new statement making clear that “Warner Bros and the filmmakers are deeply saddened to learn about the shocking” Aurora movie theater shooting. The studio just cancelled tonight’s The Dark Knight Rises movie premiere in Paris as well as for all French press interviews for director Christopher Nolan and stars Christian Bale, Anne Hathaway, and Morgan Freeman (who have not commented on the tragedy). Here’s the new Warner Bros’ and filmmakers’ statement:
“Warner Bros. and the filmmakers are deeply saddened to learn about this
