Sony Hackers Threaten 9/11-Like Attack At 'The Interview' Screenings, Stars Cancel Media Appearances | Interview
There does not seem to be anyway to stop those infamous Sony hackers, other than taking The Interview out of theaters. After first revealing their demand to halt the release of the movie, the group has now unleahed a new statement that threatens an attack similar to that of 9/11 at theaters that will screen it. The hackers, known as Guardians Of Peace, released a new pack of files under the name of Michael Lynton, one of Sony's CEOs. Furthermore, they went as far as to threaten theaters that will screen The Interview with terrorist attacks. Their specific statement reads:
Warning We will clearly show it to you at the very time and places "The Interview” be shown, including the premiere, how bitter fate those who seek fun in terror should be doomed to. Soon all the world will see what an awful movie Sony Pictures Entertainment has made. The world will be full of fear. Remember the 11th of September 2001. We recommend you to keep yourself distant from the places at that time. (If your house is nearby, you’d better leave.) Whatever comes in the coming days is called by the greed of Sony Pictures Entertainment. All the world will denounce the SONY. More to come…
Previous reports wanted the hackers’ attack related to North Korea, as the film revolves around murdering the country’s political leader, Kim Jong-un. However, James Franco and Seth Rogen have gone and defended their movie, by stating it was never meant to be controversial, but just for laughs instead. Reportedly, the newly released threatening statement has now caused both stars of The Interview to cancel all scheduled press events and other public appearances for the promotion of the film. Fortcoming meetings with the press and television events have all been scrapped. If anything, the idea of a terrorist attack alone should be enough for Sony to cancel screenings of the film. Even though the Los Angeles premiere of the movie took place in peace last week, Lord knows what could happen during the one scheduled for Thursday in New York and every other future screening of The Interview. In any case, is it really worth the risk?
