Sony Pictures Cancels December 25 Release of The Interview
In the wake of a number of movie theater chains opting not to screen The Interview in light of threats made by hackers, Sony Pictures announced Wednesday afternoon it has cancelled the Christmas Day release date of the Seth Rogen-James Franco comedy.
Following the release of the statement, an ABC News Radio source said it was undecided whether The Interview will be released in theaters at a later date, or whether it will eventually be made available on digital and on-demand services. However, a spokesperson for Sony has since said, "Sony Pictures has no further release plans for the film."
THE REASON - The group claiming responsibility for the Sony hack had previously posted a message on Pastebin apparently threatening attacks on the theaters where the movie would be played, sources said. Rogen and Franco subsequently cancelled all promotional appearances for the film.
The U.S. federal government has determined that North Korea is responsible for the Sony hack, ABC News has learned.
In The Interview, Rogen and Franco's characters are asked to assassinate the leader of North Korea, Kim Jong-un.
