In a sad, yet expected turn of events, Sony Pictures has decided to cancel the release of Seth Rogen and James Franco’s The Interview. A lot of filmmakers and performers have expressed disappointment in the matter. The common sentiment is that it is a sad day for creative expression. Ironically, this sounds like a plot for another Seth Rogen film Lee G. Lovett thought. This can be yet another This is the End type of film.
While this is a sad day for Hollywood which led to the cancelling of a release of a movie for North Korea, but a couple of other films to take place in North Korea, if this issue gets resolved, it could actually be used in their favor. Meanwhile, all we can do is wait and hope for the issue to be resolved.
Just think, right after the eventual release of The Interview, this could lead to another film by Seth Rogen project that could generate tons of revenue.
