Tom Cruise - Jack Reacher Premiere Postponed Out Of Respect For Shooting Victims

Tom Cruise and Paramount's new film, Jack Reacher, will be put on ice for the time being as the film's producers have deemed the time inappropriate to hold a lavish film premiere in lieu of yesterdays horrific shooting incident that has horrified the nation and the world.

With a nation in mourning for the 28 people left dead, 20 of whom were children, at an elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut, Paramount have decided the best thing to do is to postpone tonight's premiere in Pittsburg for an indefinite time. In a statement obtained by E! News, a spokesperson for the production company said: "Due to the terrible tragedy...and out of honor and respect for the families of the victims whose lives were senselessly taken, we are postponing tomorrow's Pittsburgh premiere of Jack Reacher. Our hearts go out to all those who lost loved ones."

The upcoming action film, which stars Rosamund Pike and Richard Jenkins as well as Cruise, sees the film veteran play a loner detective, who possesses exceptional intelligence and physical acumen as he investigates a case, involving a trained military sniper who shot five random victims. The film has already enjoyed premieres in London and Stockholm and was due to have its U.S. premiere in Pittsburg today (Dec 15). Certain parts of the film were shot in Pittsburgh, hence its selection as the locale for the U.S. premiere.
