Seth Rogen declined a chance to share his thoughts on Sony canceling the release of “The Interview.” Seth arrived at LAX Wednesday night and was peppered with questions from photographers. However, he chose to keep silent instead walking to his waiting limo without saying a word. The prolific tweeter has also kept silent on social media since the decision to shelve the film was made.
One other casualty of Sony pulling “The Interview” after threats of violence at movie theaters is an upcoming Steve Carrell project. “Pyongyang” was a thriller set to star Carrell and was also set in North Korea.
