Producers are interested in making 'Sony Hack' the movie.
As you may recall, around Christmas time 'The Interview' was set to premiere but North Korean hackers caused for the movies release get cancelled. Well, get ready for a movie about it.
From The Hollywood Reporter
The first film to address the Sony Pictures hack is in the works, from the team behind 2013’s Oscar-nominated, Emmy-winning documentary The Square from Netflix. Spouses Jehane Noujaim and Karim Amer quietly are working on a documentary that explores the cyberattack.
The untitled film is expected to drop new bombshells. Sources say director Noujaim and producer Amer will put forth alternative theories about the hack’s culprit. After the breach was detected Nov. 24, focus immediately shifted to North Korea, which had expressed outrage over The Interview. On Dec. 19, the FBI and President Obama fingered the rogue nation as the perpetrator.
But many in the cybersecurity community believe that the attack likely was an inside job given that the hackers exhibited intimate knowledge of the architecture of Sony’s servers.
Hopefully in the movie we can find out who really caused the Sony Hack. But, it may be interesting to see Sony make the feature film version with James Franco playing Seth Rogen and Seth Rogen playing James Franco. With Randall Park returning as Kim Jong-Un and Barack Obama played by The Rock.
