Earlier this week, Sony Pictures gave in to the demands of the Guardians of Peace and cancelled the theatrical release of their new movie “The Interview.”
And now there’s a new message from the cyber terrorism group, warning that if the James Franco/Seth Rogen film ever sees the light of day, they’ll drop even more private emails and sensitive material gathered from hacking into Sony’s computers.
It seems that the Guardians of Peace hackers have won the war on Sony Pictures, as the company announced today that “The Interview” won’t be hitting theaters on Christmas. Per a statement from the studio, it is in everyone’s best interests to pull the film, especially considering that so many theaters have already voiced concern.
A Sony spokesperson explained, “In light of the decision by the majority of our exhibitors not to show the film The Interview, we have decided not to move forward with the planned December 25 theatrical release.”
