Tom Cruise returning to Pittsburgh for Jack Reacher premiere


PITTSBURGH (AP) - Tom Cruise is heading to Pittsburgh for a scaled-down screening of his new action movie, Jack Reacher, after it was postponed over the weekend because of the deadly school shooting in Connecticut.

Friday's shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, left 20 children and six adults dead at the school, along with the gunman and his mother.

Paramount Pictures then postponed the Saturday United States premiere of the movie, which was filmed in Pittsburgh and is set to open on Dec 21.

The studio says Cruise will return to Pittsburgh on Wednesday to screen Jack Reacher for fans. It says there won't be a red carpet but Cruise will introduce the film.
