Sony Puts The Interview Back In Theaters


Sony Pictures is releasing the controversial film The Interview to a limited number of indie theaters on Christmas Day. This decision comes only a week after Sony cancelled the movie’s release following hacking threats blamed on North Korea.

After much criticism from actors, screenwriters, producers, the public and even President Obama, the studio decided to give the comedy the green light.

Sony Pictures Chief Executive Michael Lynton confirmed the news in the following statement:

“We have never given up on releasing ‘The Interview’ and we’re excited our movie will be in a number of theaters on Christmas Day.
While we hope this is only the first step of the film’s release, we are proud to make it available to the public and to have stood up to those who attempted to suppress free speech.”

After Sony made their announcement, Seth Rogen and James Franco said they couldn’t be happier.

“The people have spoken! Freedom has prevailed! VICTORY!!!!!!! The PEOPLE and THE PRESIDENT have spoken!!!”
