The Sony hack seems to be the gift that keeps on giving. For the past few weeks, the media has been inundated with stolen information. Some of it has been incredibly salacious while other parts have been rather boring. People like Hollywood screenwriter Aaron Sorkin have been railing against the media for publishing this stolen information while many other celebrities seem resigned to their fate. There have been no resignations over at Sony despite the mountain of bad press they have received for the inappropriate emails that were leaked. We have rounded up 7 of the most shocking revelations from the Sony hack – enjoy!
7. James Franco & Seth Roger Pay Differences for The Interview
Sony hackers revealed how much James Franco and Seth Rogen were compensated for their work in the controversial comedy, “The Interview.” Rogen was reportedly paid $8.4 million while Franco was only paid $6.5 million. With the way things are going right now, it actually looks like the film might not be released. The hackers recently issue a warning, threatening a 9/11 type attack if “The Interview” is released.
For a couple of months now, the film has been creating controversy. Franco and Rogen play a pair of TV journalists who are hired by the CIA to assassinate North Korea’s current leader, Kim Jong Un. North Korea is obviously upset about this and so are the hackers who have been breaking into Sony’s system and stealing information. Since the threat was issued, Franco and Rogen have canceled several of their press appearances and Sony is reportedly considering canceling the entire release.
