Sony Pictures cleared the way Tuesday for release of "The Interview" in some U.S. theaters on Christmas Day, less than a week after pulling the movie following a devastating cyberattack that has been blamed on North Korea.Sony Pictures Chief Executive Michael Lynton said there would be "a limited theatrical release" in the United States of the comedy about a fictional plot to assassinate North Korea leader Kim Jong Un, and said the studio was looking for more options to screen the film.Sony Pictures last Wednesday canceled the Dec. 25 release after major U.S. theater chains pulled out of showing the film because of threats from hackers. It remained unclear how many theaters would be allowed to screen the film and if major movie chains, which had decided not to open the film last week owing to security concerns, would join the group of authorized exhibitors.
