More Sony Hacked Info Revealed including Seth Rogen’s $8.4 Million Payday

Seth Rogen

The Sony Pictures hack story is a gift that keeps on giving for writers. Now the personal information of more than 47, 000 current and former employees of Sony, including Judd Apatow and Sylvester Stallone, has reportedly been released.

According to a report in Bloomberg, the salaries of the two stars of the upcoming movie “The Interview” were made public. Seth Rogen made $8.4 million for it while his co-star James Franco only got paid $6.4 million. Apparently Rogen is worth more at the box office than his longtime friend and collaborator, in spite of the fact that Franco is a Yale PhD candidate in literature.

The movie cost $44 million to produce – a bargain these days – which included $5, 000 for Kevin Federline to make a cameo for some reason. Also, $241 went to pay for a “table of weed, coke, pills and panties.”

“That’s really, really sensitive stuff, particularly for high-profile people, ” Zachary K. Goldman, executive director of the Center on Law and Security at New York University’s School of Law told Bloomberg. “Think of all the mayhem you could cause with that.”

Meanwhile, original reports that the hack was the work of North Koreans angry over how the new movie portrays their country are being disputed.

The Hollywood Reporter’s Matthew Belloni said that a Source at Sony told him that the company denies the claims made by the organization Re/code that it was the responsible for the hack. He tweeted, “A Sony rep tells me the studio will not be making a statement on the source of the hack. A contrary report out there is wrong, they say.”

“The investigation continues into this very sophisticated cyberattack. The re/code story is not accurate, ” a Sony Pictures Entertainment representative told The Associated Press.

North Korea, for its part, has formally denied any involvement in the hack. A spokesman for its government stated, “Linking the DPRK to the Sony hacking is another fabrication targeting the country. My country publicly declared that it would follow international norms banning hacking and piracy.”
