A scheduled Star Trek Beyond event at the Cannes Lions festival has been cancelled over actor Anton Yelchin’s death. Cast members for the sci-fi thriller film were supposed to attend a Q & A seminar promoting the movie on Wednesday morning but were reportedly struggling with grief over the death.

Paramount Pictures said in a statement that “All of us are deeply saddened by the loss of our friend Anton Yelchin,” and that they will be withdrawing their participation from the festival “Out of respect”

 

The 27- year- old Yelchin, best known for his role as Chekov in the last two Star Trek films, was killed in a car accident on Sunday after his Jeep rolled down the driveway at his California home and pinned him between a metal security gate and a brick mailbox pillar.
