The Sony hacking drama has enough material to make a full blown movie out of it and the content just keeps rolling in. Sony is making plans to allow Kim Jong Un and the entire world to watch The Interview absolutely free on Crackle. Sony owns the streaming service that competes with the likes of Netflix and Hulu; you may have seen the Crackle icon on your Apple TV menu.
After being hacked and losing employee’s sensitive personal information to those hackers (including Hollywood stars’ information), several unreleased movies which later were leaked online to several torrent sites, having prominent emails leak embarrassing employees like Amy Pascal and receiving threats to Sony and theaters that screened The Interview, Sony backed down and pulled the release of the movie.
But after much outcry from those online, Hollywood and even the President of The United States, Sony may just be standing its ground against this obvious attempt at cyber-terrorism. North Korea has again denied any involvement in the hacks or the threats and has even offered help to find the hackers. The FBI has already confirmed that all roads lead directly to North Korea as being involved, whether that’s directly or indirectly we don’t know for sure. If Sony does go ahead with the Crackle release, you can bet I’ll be watching, though I’m not a huge fan of Rogen. How can you not after all this drama?
Can’t wait to see the film Sony makes about this whole experience, should be interesting.Source: The NY Post
