A group of hackers called “The Guardians of the Peace” are on the attack once again, this time targeting James Franco and Seth Rogen who are starring in Sony’s new comedy “The Interview.” According to Bloomberg, the hackers reported that Rogen earned $8.4 million and co-star Franco earned $6.5 million. The hackers also revealed the $5,000 salary of Kevin Federline, who also makes an cameo appearance in the comedy film.
This movie seems to be the reason the hackers have targeted Sony because this film involves a plot to assassinate North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un, which has reportedly angered North Korean officials.
Bloomberg reports that despite the cyber attacks, there are no plans to stop or delay the release of this film.
Seth Rogen spoke out on Twitter to dismiss a rumor that he would not be attending a screening of the film saying, “There’s a bulls–t story out there that our amazing Denver weed screening of #TheInterviewMovie is cancelled. Lies! I’ll be there, Denver!”
Despite reports that North Korea is responsible for this hacking, we do not know who is responsible, but there is an ongoing investigation to find the culprit.
