‘Paradise’ slot lost at British fest

Suicide bomber pic nixed

LONDON — Following the news that suicide bombers were behind last week’s terrorist attacks in London, the Cambridge Film Festival has nixed Saturday’s U.K. preem of “Paradise Now,” about two Palestinian suicide bombers.

Decision was made after consultation with local authorities, the police and fest management, according to a notice on the fest’s Web site.

The British Academy of Film & Television Arts also has pulled a special screening of the pic and Q&A session.

A spokesman said it “had nothing to do with the attacks last week. It’s because of complications over Warners’ U.K. rights.”

Film is skedded for an August release in Blighty. A WB spokesman declined to comment on the situation.

Helmer Abu-Asad’s pic won three awards after its bow in the Berlin Film Festival in February.
