FOX 411 reported:
In the most shocking development yet, the Sony attackers have threatened a 9/11-like attack on movie theaters that screen Seth Rogen and James Franco’s North Korean comedy “The Interview.”
They also released the promised “Christmas gift” of files. The contents of the files are unknown but it’s called “Michael Lynton,” who is the CEO of Sony Pictures Entertainment.
“The world will be full of fear,” the message reads. “Remember the 11th of September 2001. 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 message accompanied another leak of internal documents and studio information. Past messages have included budgets to Sony films, salary information of top executives, and employee medical records and social security numbers.
A spokesman for the studio did not immediately respond to a request for comment, nor did an FBI spokesman or a spokesman for the National Association of Theatre Owners.
