*An official from the U.S. Dept. of Homeland Security is telling TMZ that the Sony hackers’ 9/11-style threat of attacking movie theaters playing “The Interview” is not credible…so far.
A DHS official tells TMZ, “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 hackers, a.k.a. the Guardians of Peace, on Monday warned of a 9/11-like attack on movie theaters that screen the comedy about an assassination attempt against North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
“The world will be full of fear,” the message read, adding, “Remember the 11th of September 2001.”
The threat, however, was enough to cause the film’s stars Seth Rogan and James Franco to cancel all media appearances for today and Wednesday.
Rogen appeared on “The Colbert Report” Monday night but will not do any interviews through Wednesday, said his rep Matt Labov. “We have no comment beyond that.”
Franco’s camp has yet to comment.
