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.
