PARIS : Legend Premiere Cancelled

While Paris continues to reel from the horrific terror attacks of Friday night, film premieres continue to be cancelled.

Studiocanal’s Legend, which sees Tom Hardy in a lauded dual performance as the Kray twins Ronnie and Reggie, is no longer going forward with its planned French premiere Tuesday, a rep confirmed.

Hardy was not expected to attend the screening which was due to be held at the Olympia Theater in the 9th arrodissement, not far from the Opéra Garnier and the Place de la Madelaine. However, British singer Duffy, who stars in the film, had been expected to give a special performance.

“Following the tragic events of this weekend, we decided to cancel the premiere of the movie Legend which was scheduled tomorrow, Tuesday, at the Olympia,” read a statement from parent company Vivendi. “We thank you for your understanding.”
