It looks like Sony will not be putting out The Interview at all.
In a statement, the studio said:

Frank Underwood is going to be pissed—and he's already got Stamper on it.
House of Cards may be forced to end it's shooting in Maryland thanks to *drumroll* politics!
Kind of ironic, since the show centers around drama in the capitol, no?? LOLz!
The beautiful production location is in some serious jeopardy because legislators failed to reach a last-minute compromise Monday that would have increased funding for movie and TV tax incentives to $18 million—$15 million of which would be going directly to HOC.
In layman's terms, the bill (which provides cash for TV/film that shoots instate) passed.
On top of all this, the state was only willing to offer them $4 million this year, which is a HUGE cutback from the preceding $26.6 million for seasons 1 and 2.
Production on the third season has been pushed to June while the producers wait to see if the state comes up with additional funding…
But with all this legislative confusion, the show might need to pack up for good!
GAHDAM, where's Raymond Tusk's money when you need it!
