Steve Carell’s North Korea movie canceled after Sony hack
Hollywood cans ‘Pyongyang,’ a thriller set in North Korea.
Just hours after Sony canceled the release of The Interview following a cyberattack that reportedly will be blamed by the U.S. on North Korea, New Regency just canceled Pyongyang, a thriller starring Steve Carell, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The movie, which was scheduled to start shooting in March 2015, was about a Westerner accused of espionage in North Korea. The plot focuses in on Korean propaganda and its absurdities.
The movie, based on a graphic novel by Canadian Guy Delisle, was going to be directed by Gore Verbinski who has worked on three Pirates of the Caribbean films among other projects.
