Sony has decided to withdraw "The Interview," due to terrorism threats from the Guardians of Peace hacker group - and Steve Carell's "Pyongyang" movie has been scrapped. The so-called "paranoid thriller" movie was written by Steve Conrad and originates from the "Pyongyang" graphic novel created by Guy Delisle.

Not surprisingly, Carell wasn't overly amused with news Sony canned "The Interview" and his movie also was caught in the crossfire, tweeting the following message: "Sad day for creative expression. #feareatsthesoul"

 

The US government is set to officially blame North Korea for SPE's recent cyberattack, which has caused great harm to Sony - as employee personal information, medical data, and email conversations have been leaked online.
