Just over a week before the climactic release of Sony Picture’s “The Interview” starring Seth Rogan and James Franco, the studio has decided to pull out.
Sony has received a serious pounding after hackers gained access to the back door of the movie studio’s network.
With releases of salaries, social security numbers, and AIM exchanges, Sony’s stock is experiencing shrinkage as hackers are expected to tear further into the private sections of Sony’s database.
“The Interview” was going to continue with its scheduled December 25th release, until the hackers known as “The Guardians of Peace” threatened a 9-11 style attack on any movie theater that shows the film.
A spokesperson had this to say, “We all want to stand hard and firm against terrorism, but sometimes it’s better to retreat back inside.
No one wants to be responsible for another person’s life just for the sake of entertainment, and because of this, it is always a good philosophy to just pull out.”
