Criticism over Sony film decision
18 Dec 2014 10:10
Hollywood stars have reacted to the decision to pull a film about the assassination of the North Korean leader.
-
Actor Ben Stiller has described the move as "a threat to freedom of expression".
-
'The Interview' has been shelved after hackers threatened to launch terrorist attacks on cinemas that showed the film.
-
The comedy, which stars Seth Rogen and James Franco, was due to be released in the US on 25 December.
-
But hackers calling themselves Guardians of Peace threatened to launch attacks like those on 11 September 2001.
-
Sony Pictures said it was pulling the movie "in light of the decision by the majority of our exhibitors not to show the film".

Stressing that he was speaking "as a creative person, not any kind of expert", Stiller said: "Terror threats shouldn't dictate free expression. That's my opinion."
