The world was shaken up Friday when more than 100 people died following deadly city-wide terrorist attacks in Paris, France.

As Lionsgate gears up for Monday's Los Angeles premiere of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 -- their fourth and final installment of the four-part series based on the novel by Suzanne Collins -- the production studio has decided to cancel all red carpet interviews in wake of the situation.

"Out of respect for the very recent events in Paris, we have decided to modify our red carpet, and we will not conduct interviews at Monday's Mockingjay 2 premiere," ET was told in a statement from Lionsgate. "We will proceed with the rest of the event as planned in honor of the incredible fans who have always supported our films with such passion."

After Friday's tragic events, some of the film's stars took to social media to show support for the people of Paris.

"My deepest thoughts and feelings go out to all those affected in Paris right now," Liam Hemsworth, who plays Gale Hawthorne, tweeted.
