Sony cancels parody film as N. Korea suspected over hack

0

LOS ANGELES: Sony Pictures on Wednesday (Thursday in Manila) cancelled the release of a madcap comedy about North Korea that triggered chilling threats from hackers, as US investigators reportedly blamed Pyongyang for a damaging cyber-raid on the movie giant. The Hollywood studio announced the move after US theater chains said they would not screen “The Interview,” about a fictional plot to assassinate North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un.
