The Interview is getting plenty of press, despite the fact that co-stars James Franco and Seth Rogen have canceled all media appearances for the Sony Pictures Entertainment comedy, in theaters Christmas Day.
E! News confirms that Thursday's New York City premiere will not take place. The actors attended the Los Angeles premiere last week, but per a reported mandate from the studio, they didn't do interviews.
The Interview depicts the fictional assassination of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.
Franco, 36, and Rogen, 32, also pulled out of joint appearances on Buzzfeed Brews Tuesday and NBC's The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon Wednesday. Rogen's Thursday appearance on NBC's The Late Night With Seth Meyers has also been canceled in wake of the unidentified hackers' most recent threat.
The latest anonymous email from the hackers, issued Tuesday, appeared to threaten violence against public screenings of the movie. "Remember the 11th of September 2001. We recommend you to keep yourself distant from the places at that time," the hacker group wrote. "If your house is nearby, you'd better leave. Whatever comes in the coming days is called by the greed of Sony Pictures Entertainment."
