Sony had a tough decision to make after the infamous hackers demanded they bury the Seth Rogen-James Franco comedy The Interview as deep into their archives as they could: either release the film and potentially risk the safety of many, or cancel its release until further measures are taken. As we all know, the studio went with the latter, and at least some Americans agreed with the choice.
This has to be our retaliation, right? There’s no other explanation as to North Korea suddenly being offline other than the fact that President Obama told his top tech geeks to unplug the hostile nation while he was vacationing in Hawaii with his family.
In light of the current situation with Seth Rogen and James Franco, there's been heavy discussion about the duo’s future work, including Pineapple Express 2.

Paramount is blocking theaters from hosting screenings of Trey Parker and Matt Stone’s Team America: World Police in place of Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg’s The Interview, according to Tweets posted by the theaters.
You know who hasn’t responded on social media yet? Seth Rogen, whose last Tweet was about Birdman. Like us, he probably doesn’t know what to say in the wake of this increasingly bizarre story.
Much smaller chains like Celebration! Cinemas and Malco Theatres told Variety they had yet to make their decision on whether to screen the film. But fear of attacks, or the fear of violent outbursts at theaters carrying the movie, appear to have blocked The Interview from opening on Christmas Day.
The situation with Sony's hacking problems has lead to the demand we were all waiting to drop. Read on to find out what this says about The Interview, and just who might be making these demands.

Need a good laugh to help you close out your Monday? May I present you with the latest trailer for Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg's The Interview - which should have you rolling out of your chair laughing.
Famous people don't always get the chance to pick who will play them in a biopic about their life, but that doesn't stop them from imaging their dream choice (as I'm sure many of you do). Take Andrew Dice Clay, for example. One can't say if a movie will ever be made about his life and career, but the stand-up comedian has someone in mind to star in the project should anyone ever decide to make it.
Joining me on this week’s episode is Cinema Blend’s own Sean O’Connell, and together we pitch six different actors who we would like to see potentially take on the lead role in Doctor Strange. Who do we want to see get the part? You’ll have to watch to find out!
While most of the characters in Rogen and Goldberg’s This Is The End find a way to get raptured and taken off to heaven, that was not the fate that wound up being orchestrated for James Franco. Instead, a plan to "sacrifice" himself in the third act of the movie goes horribly awry, and he winds up getting eaten by Danny McBride and his team of cannibals.
After years of success writing some of the funniest moves in Hollywood, Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg truly stepped up their game in 2013. The duo made their directorial debut with This Is The End, and the apocalyptic comedy was not only a smash hit at the box office, but also won mass critic approval.

Rant: An Oral Biography of Buster Casey, if we’re getting formal, is the story of a guy who earned the vomit-influenced nickname Rant thanks to a particularly disgusting prank he pulled as a child. Though disturbing, the story is engrossing due to Palahniuk’s use of “oral” narratives given by many of the people who knew Rant during his relatively short life.
MTV and Sony say that Franco and Rogen’s special will have the duo in character interacting with VMA performers Nicki Minaj and Iggy Azalea, and VMA nominee Jason Derulo.
One is the alteration of various buttons worn by the North Korean characters in the film, which apparently are accurate representation of what is worn by certain military officials in North Korea, a detail that seems unnecessarily blasphemous.
There are a lot of actors who routinely find themselves in more trouble than James Franco, but I’m not sure there’s one who routinely finds himself in the middle of more weirdness. From obnoxious Oscar campaigns to invisible art to underage girls, he’s almost a magnet for the bizarre, which is why the following lawsuit shouldn’t surprise you in the least.
