“Our hearts mourn today with the passing of Betty White. During the many years we worked with her, we developed a great love and admiration for Betty as a person, and as an accomplished entertainer,” film producers Steve Boettcher and Mike Trinklein said in a statement. “We are thankful for the many decades of delight she brought to everyone. Betty always said she was the ‘luckiest broad on two feet’ to have had a career as long as she did. And honestly, we were the lucky ones to have had her for so long.”
Despite her passing on Dec. 31, White’s film screening will go on as planned in celebration of her life and career, Boettcher told CNN.
“Betty White: 100 Years Young” will debut on Jan. 17 for a one-day-only event in select theaters.
