Sarah Palin to Attend Film Premiere in Iowa

Kevork Djansezian/Getty Images(PELLA, Iowa) -- Sarah Palin is headed to Iowa.

The production and publicity firms behind the new documentary about Palin released a statement on Saturday confirming that the former Alaska governor and her husband will attend the Tuesday premiere of The Undefeated in Pella, Iowa.

The film will be shown at the Pella Opera House at 5 p.m. central time and a "traditional Iowa cookout" will follow.

"We are very excited to visit historic Pella and its opera house and look forward to seeing the finished film for the first time with fellow Americans from the heartland," Palin said in the statement.

The premiere comes ahead of the film's July 15 national roll out, when it opens in 10 cities -- Dallas, Denver, Oklahoma City, Orlando, Atlanta, Orange County, Phoenix, Houston, Indianapolis, and Kansas City.

Recently Palin told ABC News that she wanted to visit Iowa with her "One Nation" bus tour this summer. It's unclear if Tuesday's event will mark the revival of that tour.

The premiere coincides with President Barack Obama's scheduled trip to Iowa Tuesday and comes one day after tea party favorite Michele Bachmann is slated to launch her 2012 presidential bid.
