NEW YORK (AP) — Producers of Alex Gibney's "No Stone Unturned" have pulled the documentary about the 1994 murder of six men in Northern Ireland from the Tribeca Film Festival over legal issues.

The film was to premiere April 23 at the festival, where "No Stone Unturned" would have been one of the more high-profile documentaries debuting. Producer Trevor Birney said in a statement he was "bitterly disappointed" to withdraw the film because of "ongoing legal issues relating to the subject matter of the film."

Birney said most disappointed are the families at the center of the film "whose quest for justice has been both inspiring and unstinting these last 23 years."

The New York festival said it was notified Friday and that it shared in the disappointment of the film's producers and Gibney.
