Theatergoers won't be seeing Sony's new movie "The Interview" after all.

FOX News Radio's Tonya J. Powers has more.

Sony Pictures has pulled the plug on the movie.

(Clip from The Inteview) "Three weeks from tonight, I will be traveling to Pyongyang, North Korea to interview President Kim Jong-un."

After hackers threatened the 9-11 style attacks on theaters that play the film. Federal investigators say the hack is linked to North Korea. The movie is a spoof about the assassination of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

Some moviegoers say it's better to be safe than sorry...

(Moviegoer): "I suppose when you're getting threats like that and they've already hacked and stuff, I mean, you should probably take it a bit seriously."

Sony says it has no future release plans for it. Many actors reacted on social media, expressing disappointment in Sony for canceling the release. Many saying "the hackers won."

Josh Earnest

The hacking of Sony Pictures is being as a national security matter.

FOX News Radio's Jared Halpern has more from the White House:

Even as federal law enforcement work to pinpoint the people behind the cyber attack on Sony studios, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest says there will be a proportional and appropriate response.

(Earnest) "An appropriate response is something that is not always obvious, but is something that is worthy of careful consideration."

In other words, it may not be clear how or when the U.S. responds.

Earnest also stopping short of naming North Korea as the source of the attack.

The hackers demanded the movie company not release "The Interview", a comedy portraying the assassination of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.
