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.
