Movie theaters around the US have decided against showing The Interview starring James Franco and Seth Rogen amid 9/11 style threats. According to the HuffPo, The New York premiere of “The Interview” canceled after threats of violence at theaters surfaced.
This is just the continuation of the major Sony Pictures Entertainment hack this month that has seen a devastating blow to employees of Sony…including movie leaks and private emails that have ranged from racist to funny…ahem—Channing Tatum.
The Guardians of Peace, who have claimed ownership of the attack over the release of the movie, The Interview in which two Americans are sent in to North Korea on a mission to kill North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, but its still unclear if the group has ties to North Korea. The Department of Homeland Security released a statement saying “no credible intelligence to indicate an active plot against movie theaters,” but people are still worried about the possible attacks and did warn NY and LA to beef up security just in case.
