In reviewing the latest threat from the Sony hackers, the Department of Homeland Security says it has not yet discovered evidence of an active plot against U.S. theaters planning to show “The Interview.”
According to a DHS official, the department is aware of the newest development. “We are still analyzing the credibility of these statements, but at this time there is no credible intelligence to indicate an active plot against movie theaters within the United States,” the statement reads.
The latest email from the hackers appears to threaten theaters screening the movie. “Remember the 11th of September 2001,” it reads. “We recommend you to keep yourself distant from the places at that time. (If your house is nearby, you’d better leave.) Whatever comes in the coming days is called by the greed of Sony Pictures Entertainment.”
“The Interview” is still scheduled to open on Christmas Day. Neither Sony or theaters have yet made a decision to pull the movie.
