According to several theaters which had planned to screen the 2004 comedy Team America: World Police in lieu of the film The Interview, Paramount has put the kibosh on the whole thing.

Texas regional theater group Alamo Drafthouse made headlines earlier when they announced a screening of the Trey Parker/Matt Stone film this Christmas to replace a screening of the new Seth Rogen/James Franco comedy The Interview.

As you probably know, Sony Pictures pulled the theatrical release of The Interview following vague, terroristic threats were made on any and all theaters showing the film. The group behind the threats were also responsible for the embarrassing hack that compromised thousand of Sony's documents. It's still unknown if North Korea has any part in this.

The group is reportedly upset over the film's content, which depicts the assassination of North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un. Team America also pokes fun at North Korea and its leader – only it's Kim Jong-il.

Here's Alamo Drafthouse, alongside various other theaters, announcing the cancellations over Twitter. A few blame Paramount specifically.

America? F-ck yeah?
