Sony Changes Tune On Releasing 'The Interview'
Sony says the show must go on!
The film studio now says the Seth Rogen and James Franco comedy The Interview will be released!
Sony's attorney David Boies appeared on Meet the Press and said contrary to reports, the film was never cancelled, only delayed.
"Sony has been fighting to get this picture distributed," said Boies. "It will be distributed."
The film, originally slated to air on Christmas Day, will soon be made available online.
But the drama isn't over. North Korean authorities are issuing new threats against the U.S. over the movie saying they would target "all the citadels" of the U.S. without specifying what they meant by citadels.
And the hacker group Guardians of Peace that started all the threats is still at it, posting a new video online mocking the FBI agents who investigated them, calling them idiots.
When asked about the hacking scandal over the weekend, President Obama had this to say, "I don't think it was an act of war. I think it was an act of cyber vandalism that was very costly, very expensive. We take it very seriously and we shall respond proportionately, as I said."
Saturday Night Live gave a funny response to the hacking scandal by bringing back SNL alum Mike Myers.
The comedian reprised his Austin Powers character, Dr. Evil, joking. "I've pre-empted this program because I'm furious that North Korea and Sony Pictures have both given evil organizations a bad name. It's like watching two bald men fight over a comb. Who cares?"
