A star turned to tragedy after his “Rose” film suffered a massive shooting in an Aurora, Colo., movie theater on Friday night.
The star, Michael Fassbender, who starred in the first “Rose,” will be a director in a new film by director James “Fassbender” Wan, which is scheduled to be released in late 2019.
Fassbender was in Aurora to meet with a group of the victims of the attack on Friday evening.
He tweeted from a hospital bed that he was OK, but was taken to a nearby hospital after the shooting.
The shooting, which injured two people, prompted the director of the film, producer Scott Derrickson, to tweet that he had been taken to the hospital for treatment.

The company said it is working with the Aurora Police Department to assist in the investigation.
In an interview with the Associated Press on Saturday, Derricksin said he believed the shooting was a tragic accident.
