James Franco Hires A HUGE Bodyguard As Sony Completely Cancels The Interview's Release Due To Terrorism Threats

| Filed under: James FrancoScary!

James Franco is taking the SONY hacker threats VERY seriously.

It looks like James Franco is taking some extra safety precautions, and we can't really blame him.

For the past couple of weeks, a major hack on Sony has leaked tons of information on actor salaries and juicy executive emails, but things took a scary turn on Tuesday when the hackers promised 9/11-like attacks on ANY theater showing The Interview.

Well, it appears James is taking these threats VERY seriously as he was spotted leaving a restaurant in Manhattan on Tuesday night with a noticeably HUGE bodyguard.

This came shortly after the film's New York premiere was cancelled, and just today it was announced that Sony was axing the film's released completely since so many theaters were declining to show it.

The sight was a bit strange considering the 36-year-old is rarely seen with a bodyguard, and hopefully he wont need one for much longer.

The Interview Has Now Been Dropped By Pretty Much Every American Theater After Terrorist Threats — How Does That Make YOU Feel??

We are so shocked and disappointed by this!

It looks like Carmike Theaters will not be alone in pulling The Interview from their schedules after threats of terrorism; according to Deadline, every major theater chain in America is following suit.

If you go see movies at AMC, Cinemark, Cineplex, or Regal Cinemas, you won't be seeing Seth Rogen and James Franco fumble through an assassination plot this Christmas.

We are scared for the safety of the film's stars and terrified at the idea of another terrorist attack hitting U.S. soil, but we just don't know if this is the right call.

Whether the film is offensive to some or not, doesn't letting terrorists decide what we can and can't watch go against our fundamental freedoms?

We're just so sad to know that this kind of violent tactic worked.

What do U think?

Should theaters have dropped The Interview because of threats?

This is terrible.

Not only was the New York premiere of The Interview canceled following the terrorist threat made by the Sony hackers, but now other theaters are pulling out as well.

The Carmike Theater chain, which operates 278 theaters in 41 states, is the first to cancel all showings of the film.

How awful. We are just torn up at the fact that these hackers have made such an impact.

We obviously want everyone to stay safe, but we just can't accept that giving in to the demands of terrorists makes us more secure.

If they get what they want, doesn't this set a dangerous precedent for others to make threats in the future?

We don't know the answer here, but we're just so sad that there are people in this world who would make these kinds of threats.

The hackers released a message, promising a 9/11-like attack for any movie theater that screens The Interview, starring Seth Rogen and James Franco.

The comedy pokes fun at North Korea's leader Kim Jong-un, which is leading people to believe that the country is behind the hacks, although they've denied it, while still praising the hackers.

The message reads:
