This is awful. The hackers are winning and there's nothing we can do to stop it (except, you know, not bending to their will!).
Sony Pictures has been hacked and all sorts of awful things have been happening from embarrassing email leaks to movie cancellations.
We previously mentioned they've pulled The Interview and don't plan to release it AT ALL anymore!
That's so ridiculous!!
Now there's another casualty: New Regency has scrapped an untitled thriller that was supposed to star Steve Carell!

The movie takes place in North Korea and was going to be directed by Gore Verbinsky, who did the Pirates of the Caribbean movies.
A Steve Carell thriller… directed by the Pirates director… that would've been something we'd have totally paid to see!!
Sadly the film's location won't be moved and the movie is just dead in the water.
All because Hollywood bowed down to hackers. Sad.
