The Interview Will Be Distributed, Sony Lawyer Insists
But studio still doesn't know how it will release controversial comedy...
Sony Pictures has insisted that it WILL release The Interview - despite terrorism threats linked to North Korea.
The movie studio has been pondering different avenues to meet demand for the film, following the refusal of the major cinema chains in the US to screen it.
Lawyer David Boies told NBC that "Sony only delayed" the release.
"Sony has been fighting to get this picture distributed. It will be distributed," he vowed.
"How it's going to be distributed, I don't think anybody knows quite yet. But it's going to be distributed."
And studio CEO Michael Lynton recently revealed that a release via YouTube had been considered.
Lynton also recently rebuffed criticism from US President Barack Obama over the film's non-release.
