We’ve been watching the drama surrounding ‘The Interview’ unfold for weeks now, and today brings yet another update to this bizarre and disappointing series of events. Following messages from the hacker terrorist group thanking Sony for canceling the release of the film and instructing them to remove all traces of the film’s existence from the Internet, Sony appears to have begun that process. The studio has now deleted its accounts for ‘The Interview’ on Facebook and Twitter, and removed the promo and clips from the official YouTube page.

Following the recent announcement that Warner Bros. has hired the awesomely talented Michelle MacLaren to direct the first ‘Wonder Woman’ solo film, we also learned that the studio was close to hiring ‘Pan’ screenwriter Jason Fuchs to pen the script. But now it seems that Fuchs may not be the only screenwriter on the project (if he’s still involved at all): rumor has it that WB has hired a total of six writers to deliver six different scripts.
