Warner Bros. Stops 3000 Degrees

Warner Bros. has stopped production on "3000 Degrees," a film based on a 1999 fire in Worcester, Mass. that killed six firefighters. The cancellation comes in the wake of protests from firefighter groups, which sought to block the film because it would reopen wounds for the firefighters' families.

As reported last week, Woody Harrelson and Ed Harris were signed on to the project and Danny Boyle ("28 Days Later") was slotted to direct. -- Mac Slocum
