This just keeps getting worse.
First, movie theatres refused to screen the Seth Rogen-James Franco movie The Interview after hackers purportedly from North Korea threatened "9/11 style" attacks against theatres showing the movie. Then yesterday Sony cancelled the release of the movie outright.
Today, New Regency studios has cancelled a movie called Pyongyang. The movie was to be based on Canadian author Guy Delisle's graphic novel of the same title about an animator accused of spying against the North Korean regime. It was to star Steve Carell and production was to begin in March.
Upon its cancellation, Carell tweeted, "Sad day for creative expression."
A sad day for freedom and liberty is more like it.
