Corden, a London native, planned to film “The Late Late Show” in the city beginning Tuesday, but the incident pushed producers to alter plans for the show’s special London edition. He will reportedly change the show’s opening.
“We’d already shot 80 percent of it, but we’ve decided to recalibrate it,” Corden told The Hollywood Reporter. “We’re going to try and do something different, but we haven’t yet figured it out yet.”
Three attackers killed seven people and injured nearly 50 on London Bridge and Borough Market over the weekend.
The special London episodes were announced back in April, and Corden told THR that the tone of the show won’t change. At the same time, however, he says there is something special about the timing.
“In one sense, of course it’s a sad time to be here, but in another sense, actually maybe bringing a show that airs I think in 153 countries to London for three nights ... is a wonderful time to be doing it,” Corden told the outlet.
The show is still set to feature the same guests, including Nicole Kidman, Tom Cruise and Kit Harrington. The highly anticipated “Carpool Karoake” segment with Ed Sheeran will still air as planned, too.
