As Steve Carell Movie Scrapped, Twitter Expresses Frustration With Chilled Speech

The latest casualty in the Sony cyberattack which resulted in The Interview being pulled from its Christmas Day distribution is an untitled Steve Carell movie, scrapped because, according to insiders who spoke to Deadline, it made "no sense."

"... it just makes no sense to move forward. The location won't be transplanted. Fox declined to distribute it."
"Famously referred to as one of the 'Axis of Evil' countries, North Korea remains one of the most secretive and mysterious nations in the world today. In early 2001 cartoonist Guy Delisle became one of the few Westerners to be allowed access to the fortresslike country. While living in the nation's capital for two months on a work visa for a French film animation company, Delisle observed what he was allowed to see of the culture and lives of the few North Koreans he encountered; his findings form the basis of this remarkable graphic novel. Pyongyang is an informative, personal, and accessible look at a dangerous and enigmatic country."

Steve Carell has not spoken out directly about the fate of the film-to-be, although his tweet from Tuesday certainly seems relevant to the film being scrapped.
