The bad month for film studios continues. A group of hackers have penetrated the Paramount Pictures computers at Viacom, accessing a trove a emails, studio documents and unreleased films.
The group has begun to slowly leak some of that information to the press and public, including a rough cut of the new Indiana Jones reboot, Indiana Bones: Raiders of the Lost Bark, which was set to hit theaters in May. The new movie is a retelling of the original Indiana Jones film with a dog as the lead protagonist.
This comes just over a month after hackers, reportedly from North Korea, broke into the computers of Sony Pictures in an effort to stop the release of The Interview. It is also just a few days after another, unrelated hacking group hit Sony’s Playstation network.
Though no one has yet taken responsibility for this hack, industry experts think that that the responsible party might be unhappy cats upset by the feline portrayal in the film. Cats were cast exclusively in the parts occupied by Nazis in the original.
