When asked to comment on the reemerging debate of violence in movies and its accountability to tragedies like these, Norton was careful in his response. "I think it's probably more complex than I would want to try to reduce to a casual statement," he said, adding sadly "These types of things are happening with disturbing frequency in our country."
Reflecting on the incident, Renner tells ET he doesn't believe the shooting will have much impact on the way Hollywood portrays violence.
"I think the effect is going to have nothing to do with movies-- I think the effect right now is going to be on other things," said Renner. "Cinema seems so small compared to the ripple effect of those events."
