The Alamo Drafthouse in Dallas has been forced to cancel its planned screening of "Team America" in place of "The Interview" later this month after Paramount reportedly refused to let the theater screen the 2004 satire comedy by South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone. The movie mocks former North Korean dictator Kim Jong-il.

Cleveland’s Capitol Theater, which also planned to screen "Team America," posted on Twitter that the event "has been canceled by Paramount Pictures," Deadline reports.

The move comes after Sony Pictures cancelled all screenings and halted all future release plans for "The Interview," the controversial Kim Jong-un assassination comedy, amid terror threats from suspected North Korean hackers.
