While the alleged perpetrators in the Sony Pictures hack may have forced the studio to scuttle the Christmas Day nationwide premiere of The Interview, Seth Rogen has at least one American theater interested in screening the film.
On his blog, Game of Thrones author and owner of Santa Fe’s Jean Cocteau Cinema, George R.R. Martin lashed out at Sony for pulling the film, adding:
I haven’t seen THE INTERVIEW. I have no idea how good or bad a film it is. It might be hilarious. It might be stupid and offensive and outrageous. (Actually, I am pretty sure about the ‘outrageous’ part). It might be all of the above.
That’s not the point, though. Whether it’s the next CITIZEN KANE or the next PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE, it astonishes me that a major Hollywood film could be killed before release by threats from a foreign power and anonymous hackers.
