London: Actress Milla Jovovich refused to pretend shooting zombies at a Japanese movie theatre as a promotional stunt for her new film “Resident Evil: Retribution”.
Jovovich says she shut down requests from film bosses to create hype for her upcoming thriller by showing up at a Japanese premiere and pretending to shoot fake zombies following Colorado’s cinema massacre, Contactmusic reported.
In July, twelve people were killed and 58 others injured when a man named James Holmes opened fire in a packed Aurora movie theatre during a midnight showing of Batman movie “The
Dark Knight Rises”.
“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’,” she said.
