The Paris premiere of "The Dark Knight Rises" has been cancelled in the wake of the shooting at a Colorado theater, where they were screening the movie.

The event on the famed Champs-Elysees was scheduled to include director Christopher Nolan and stars like Christian Bale, Anne Hathaway, Morgan Freeman and Michael Caine. But workers were forced to pull down the red carpet display as Warner Brothers issued a statement saying it was also cancelling all media interviews.

The movie studio said it was "deeply saddened" by the shooting.

Another screening is scheduled for Saturday night in Paris. It is not yet certain whether it will take place as planned.
