A Sony Pictures lawyer says that The Interview will get released - they just don't know when or how.
"Sony only delayed this," David Boies said Sunday on NBC's Meet the Press. "Sony has been fighting to get this picture distributed. It will be distributed. How it's going to be distributed, I don't think anybody knows quite yet, but it's going to be distributed."
Last week, following threats from hackers, Sony announced it was canceling the film's theatrical release, which was scheduled for Christmas Day. "We respect and understand our partners' decision and, of course, completely share their paramount interest in the safety of employees and theater-goers," the company said.
Soon after, President Obama said during a press conference that the company "made a mistake" pulling The Interview. Sony CEO Michael Lynton responded to Obama's remarks on CNN, saying, "We have not caved. We have not given in. We have persevered, and we have not backed down. We have always had every desire to have the American public see this movie." But, according to Lynton, no major VOD distributor "is willing to distribute this movie."
Should Sony find a way to release the film or move on?
