20th Century Fox Cancels It's Own North Korea-Based Film

Posted: December 19th, 2014 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
20th Century Fox Cancels ItSubmit Comment
North Korea recently broke into the computers of Sony Pictures and leaked lots of internal documents. The attackers then released a statement, threatening violence against anyone going to see "The Interview" comedy in theaters.

The studio and major theater chains immediately canceled all showings of the movie. And now comes word that other studios are now canceling their own projects that focus on North Korea.

20th Century Fox and New Regency recently greenlit "Pyongyang," a new film that was set to begin filming in March with Gore Verbinski (Pirates of the Caribbean) directing and Steve Carell starring. Fox has now decided to abandon the project.

Verbinski responded to the decision: "Getting the facts straight: Yesterday, I was told by New Regency and Fox that Fox will no longer be distributing the film. Prior to that, the film was greenlit and fully funded by New Regency with Fox distributing. I have been told in no uncertain words that based on the situation at Sony, Fox has now decided to not distribute the film. Without a distributor, New Regency was forced to shut the film down. My thoughts: I find it ironic that fear is eliminating the possibility to tell stories that depict our ability to overcome fear."

Carell also commented on Twitter, simply writing: "Sad day for creative expression."

"Pyongyang" is a thriller about a Westerner recounting his experiences of working in North Korea for a year.

Can you imagine what would happen if the same losers running Hollywood controlled our government and instead of the Norks, we were being threatened by Russia or China?

Ah, Obama's America, where we trade five terrorists for one deserter, where we cave in to Cuba, Iran, and ISIS, and where we send hardened members of Al Qaida on their merry way instead of putting them six feet under.

America. The world's largest f*cking coward nation.

Wasnīt planning to watch The Interview in the cinema because itīs probably pretty bad, but now I really wanna support the freedom of speech.
f*ckers should not decide when, if or where I should watch a comedy.
These hackergroups are maggots and they should stop blowing each other :(
