Not Awesome: Steve Carell’s North Korea Movie ‘Pyongyang’ Cancelled

Steve Carell

In a continuing bullshit theme The Wrap is reporting that the planned Gore Verbinski directed Steve Carell starring North Korea set film ‘Pyongyang’ has been shelved in the wake of the Sony hack, and the hacks at Sony cancelling the release of The Interview.

The film was set to begin filming in March and concerned a year in the life of a westerner as he lives in the North Korean capital. It was meant to be a “paranoid thriller” but I guess we’re so afraid of North Korea now that that’s not allowed, and the setting of this film couldn’t even have been changed.

What the fuck.
