Sony Is Considering Pulling 'The Interview' from Theaters
Following the hackers’ threat of attacking movie theaters showing The Interview, Sony is reportedly considering pulling the film from theaters altogether.
The movie, starring Seth Rogen and James Franco, is currently set to be released on Christmas Day and now the studio is talking with movie theater owners about whether to pull it, according to Variety.
Some theater owners plan on showing the film though.
“It’s unfortunate,” said Tom Stephenson, CEO of Look Cinemas. “If they play it, we’ll show it. Sony has a right to make the movie, we have a right to play it and censorship in general is a bad thing.”
UPDATE: Carmike Cinemas has announced it will not be showing The Interview in any of its theaters.
