Milla Jovovich - Milla Jovovich Turned Down Shooting Stunt After Colorado Cinema Massacre

Actress Milla Jovovich refused to shoot pretend zombies at a Japanese movie theatre as a promotional stunt for her new film Resident Evil: Retribution following this summer's (12) Colorado's cinema massacre.
Twelve people were killed and 58 others injured when suspected gunman James Holmes allegedly opened fire in a packed Aurora movie theatre during a midnight showing of Batman movie The Dark Knight Rises on 20 July (12).
The incident prompted widespread concern of copycat killings and a reevaluation of the nation's safety regulations, with several Americans being arrested in the wake of the tragedy after reportedly threatening a repeat.
Now Jovovich reveals she shut down requests from film bosses to create hype for her upcoming thriller by showing up at its Japanese premiere and pretending to shoot fake zombies.
She tells the New York Daily News, "They asked me to come out and shoot zombies in the theatre. And I was like, 'There's absolutely no way I'm doing anything violent in a movie theatre.'"
