In lieu of the Dec. 25 release of Seth Rogen and James Franco's "The Interview", Sony has officially canceled the release of the film. This cancelation is only one of the reprimanded actions taken by Sony after the company's computer system hack late Nov.
Previews of the film show Rogen and Franco's attempt to assassinate North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. The Sony hackers, calling themselves the "Guardians Of Peace" have released a statement warning viewers of the film, saying, "We will clearly show it to you at the very time and places 'The Interview' will be shown, including the premiere, how bitter fate those who seek fun in terror should be doomed to." In the statement the "guardians" referenced the 9/11 attacks in the threat. Although the authenticity of the note has yet to be confirmed, involvement of the North Korean government have been speculated.
