Sony cancels 'The Interview' release amid threats

(AP) Sony Pictures has canceled the Christmas Day release of the comedy movie "The Interview" under the threat of terrorist attacks from hackers.

In the movie, James Franco and Seth Rogen play journalists becoming involved in a CIA plot to assassinate North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

North Korea is being blamed for making terror threats against theaters carrying the movie and for hacking of private Sony emails and other information. 
Sony says it has "no further release plans for the film."
