Game of Thrones mastermind George R.R. Martin took to his Live Journal following news broke that Sony would bow to North Korean threats and cancel the release of the film “The Interview.”
“This one is surreal,” Martin began his lengthy blog titled “Corporate Cowardice.”
“The level of corporate cowardice here astonishes me. It’s a good thing these guys weren’t around when Charlie Chaplin made THE GREAT DICTATOR. If Kim Jong-Un scares them, Adolf Hitler would have had them shitting in their smallclothes,” Martin wrote.
“I haven’t seen THE INTERVIEW. I have no idea how good or bad a film it is. It might be hilarious. It might be stupid and offensive and outrageous. (Actually, I am pretty sure about the ‘outrageous’ part). It might be all of the above,” he continued.
While Martin hasn’t seen the film, he invited filmmaker Seth Rogen to visit him in New Mexico where he will screen the movie.
“For what it’s worth, the Jean Cocteau Cinema will be glad to screen THE INTERVIEW (assuming that Sony does eventually release the film for theatrical exhibition, rather than streaming it or dumping it as a direct-to-DVD release), should it be made available to us. Come to Santa Fe, Seth, we’ll show your film for you,” he wrote.
