Gore Verbinski Speaks Out About His Canceled North Korea Based Film

Gore Verbinski Speaks Out About His Canceled North Korea Based Film
After the announcement of "The Interview" being scrapped, director Gore Verbinski has spoken out about his own film project being affected by the fear of terrorism. Verbinksi was working on a project called "Pyongyang", which he was going to co-direct with Steve Carell.  Here is what he had to say about how his film was squashed as well. 

Getting the facts straight:
Yesterday, I was told by New Regency and Fox that Fox will no longer be distributing the film. Prior to that, the film was green lit and fully funded by New Regency with Fox distributing. I have been told in no uncertain words that based on the situation at Sony, Fox has now decided to not distribute the film. Without a distributor, New Regency was forced to shut the film down.

 My thoughts:

I find it ironic that fear is eliminating the possibility to tell stories that depict our ability to overcome fear.

Gore Verbinski
