An announcement could come as soon as Thursday, so be ready for more updates as more is revealed.
It looks like Sony will not be putting out The Interview at all.
In a statement, the studio said:

That's for Paramount and director Kenneth Branagh to decide!
You see, Jack Ryan — the book smart yet action-capable CIA superstar from a whole slew of Tom Clancy novels — needs himself a wife for a few upcoming films.
Keira Knightley is now the front-runner to land the three-picture deal playing the female lead, but nothing is set in stone.
Freckles Evangeline Lilly and Felicity Jones are also waiting in the wings. We admit, those are pretty effin' sexy plan Bs!
Star Trek vet Chris Pine is already set to play Jack — a role begun by Alec Baldwin in The Hunt for Red October, popularized by Harrison Ford in Clear & Present Danger and Patriot Games, and later
shat on played by Ben Affleck in The Sum of All Fears.
We honestly don't care which toaster oven warms Pine's egg roll at night!!
We LOVE each of these ladies and are super stoked to watch them on the big screen!
