LOS ANGELES, California (CNN) -- Twentieth Century Fox has decided to delay indefinitely the release of its new thriller "Phone Booth," about a man caught in the crosshairs of a sniper, a company official said Tuesday.
The decision came in light of the recent killings in the Washington area in which a suspected sniper has shot 11 people, the company said.
Fox had been re-evaluating the release date for several days, according to Flo Grace, vice president of corporate communications. She said Fox has not determined a new release date for the movie, which was supposed to open nationwide November 15.
The movie stars Colin Farrell as a man who answers a call in a public phone booth and then finds himself the target of a faraway gunman, played by Kiefer Sutherland. Joel Schumacher directed the film.
