(Newser) The Interview is being pulled, and that movie isn't the only fallout from the North Korean hack of Sony Pictures: Another planned movie set in North Korea has now been canceled, Deadline reports. The untitled thriller was to star Steve Carell and be directed by Gore Verbinski, but insiders say it doesn't make sense to move forward now. Carell also happens to be one of many celebrities rounded up by E! who are decrying Sony's move to pull The Interview. "Sad day for creative expression. #feareatsthesoul," he tweeted yesterday. (One Interview star says it's sad that North Korea's own fear and intimidation tactics also "work on our soil.")
