Independent cinemas offer to screen The Interview

24 December 2014, 10:07

Los Angeles - A group of independent cinemas in the US has offered to screen The Interview.

Plans to release the comedy film starring Seth Rogen and James Franco were scrapped last week following terrorism threats relating to the film's depiction of North Korea and its leader Kim Jong-un, but the Art House Convergence - a national coalition of smaller cinemas - has revealed it's willing and keen to screen the controversial movie.

Russ Collins, the group's director, said: "Circumstance has propelled The Interview into a spotlight on values, both societal and artistic, and in honour of our support; we want to offer our help in a way that honours our long tradition of defending creative expression."

The movie has also received support from Congressman Brad Sherman, who said that the US government must "stand up against these attempts at intimidation".

He added: "We must help Sony Pictures, movie theatre owners, and moviegoers regain the confidence to go see The Interview."

This comes shortly after Sony lawyer David Boies confirmed that the studio hopes to release the movie.
He said: "Sony only delayed the release of the film. Sony has been fighting to get this picture distributed. It will be distributed.

"How it's going to be distributed, I don't think anybody knows quite yet. But it's going to be distributed."
