Who is James Flacco? According to President Barack Obama, he is one of the stars of The Interview. During an end-of-year press conference in which he slammed Sony for pulling the film, Obama hilariously flubbed the actor’s name.
President Barack Obama, 53, has finally broken his silence on The Interview being pulled from movie theaters following terrifying cyberthreats made by North Korea. Unsurprisingly, he believes their decision was a “mistake” and hopes this doesn’t start a pattern of censorship made via terrorism.
President Obama has urged moviegoers to head to the theaters despite the “9/11”- like threats made against James Franco and Seth Rogen‘s new movie The Interview. But the film industry is so terrified that it has now decided to cancel screenings of Team America: World Police, another film in which North Korea and its leaders are mocked.
U.S. law enforcement officials revealed on Dec. 17 that they believe North Korea was behind the attack on Sony Pictures Entertainment. The shocking news comes after Sony canceled the theatrical release of James Franco and Seth Rogen‘s new action comedy film, The Interview, which is about two celebrity journalists who set out to assassinate North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un.
Sony is taking extra precaution after hacking group Guardians of Peace released chilling threats of a 9/11-esque atttack on theaters that screen James Franco and Seth Rogen‘s upcoming film The Interview. Theaters were given permission by Sony on Dec. 16 to cancel screenings of the film should they feel unsafe, and theater owners are frantically canceling the screenings.
The Interview hasn’t even hit theaters yet but it’s already facing a major setback. The controversial film, which stars James Franco, 36, and Seth Rogen, 32, as two celebrity journalists who set out on a mission to assassinate North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, is being targeted by a hacker group called The Guardians of Peace, our sister site Variety confirms.
