Steve Carell's North Korea Film Canceled

Steve Carell's Film About North Korea Has Been Scrapped

The cast members of The Interview aren't the only actors feeling the heat after the Sony cyberattack. A film starring Steve Carell that is set in North Korea has now been scrapped. The film was to be a "paranoid thriller" based on the graphic novel Pyongyang and had director Gore Verbinski attached to it. The abandonment of the project comes after threats of a terror attack halted the Christmas release of The Interview, whose comedic plot revolved around actors Seth Rogen and James Franco being sent to murder North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.
