Sony Has Reportedly Suspended Production On Movies Amid Hack
The Times reports filming on Sony Pictures movies has come to a halt due to money issues.
From the Times:
Agencies filming for Sony Pictures have cancelled shoots because the problems have left it unable to process payments, a source told The Times.
Sony and MGM's latest Bond movie, "Spectre," started production Mon. Dec. 8.
According to emails that have leaked in the cyberattack, the new movie, set for release next Nov., is reported to be way over budget, costing over $300 million. That figure would make "Spectre" one of the most expensive movies ever made.
Reuters reported the hack could cost Sony Pictures $100 million.
It is not known who is behind the massive security breach of Sony, though a group of hackers referring to themselves as the Guardians of Peace (GoP) have taken responsibility.
