'The Interview' To Play Select Theaters on Christmas Day, Will Be Available Via VOD

In the latest update from the major Sony hack designed to shut down The Interview, Sony is now allowing several theaters to screen the movie on Christmas day.

Two independent movie theaters, the Plaza Atlanta theater and Alamo Drafthouse, announced the news on Twitter after many major movie houses said last week that they would not be showing the controversial film after terror threats came through.

THR is also reporting that Sony will offer the film as a VOD option so it can be available to the greater public.

The Interview stars James Franco and Seth Rogen, and was originally scheduled to be released on Christmas Day before the major hack shut the operation down.

Seth Rogen makes his way out of a car while arriving at Sony Pictures Studios with a bodyguard on Thursday (December 18) in Culver City, Calif.

That same day, the 32-year-old actor’s pal and Interview costar James Franco was spotted leaving the New Museum on the Bowery before heading to the Park Avenue Armory with friends in New York City.

“We did not think [North Korea] would love the concept of the movie to be totally honest,” Seth recently said on The Colbert Report before the movie and press tour was cancelled. “But more than anything we wanted to make a movie that had one foot in reality. That’s something we as filmmakers like and think is interesting as audience members as well.”

He continued, “I personally think it is appropriate to make jokes about real things. We thought maybe we could inject some slight relevance.”
