Sony Pictures bosses still plan to distribute controversial film The Interview, despite axing its theatrical release last week (17Dec14).

After a major security breach of Sony's database, cyberhackers threatened terrorist-style attacks on any cinemas screening Seth Rogen and James Franco's comedy, which features the assassination of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

Executives at five major theatre chains in the U.S. announced they would not screen the film, leading Sony bosses to axe the Christmas Day (25Dec14) release of the movie.

Studio bosses have been under fire ever since, with many members of the Hollywood community rallying against the cancellation, and even U.S. President Barack Obama stating they "made a mistake" by cancelling the release.

On Sunday (21Dec14), Sony lawyer David Boies appeared on U.S. political news show Meet the Press, and during the interview, he made it clear that fans will still be able to view the movie by other means, which have yet to be determined.

He said, "Sony only delayed this. 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."
