Hustler is making a porn parody of 'The Interview'

Sony may have canceled its release of The Interview in light of terrorist threats much to the disappointment of President Obama and, like, 99.9 percent of Hollywood but the intrepid folks at porn studio Hustler Video aren’t afraid one bit.

Hustler announced on Friday, two days after Sony’s cancellation, that it has plans to produce a porn parody feature called This Ain’t the Interview XXX. Like the controversial comedy that inspired it,  This Ain’t the Interview follows two civilians enlisted by the CIA to assassinate the leader of North Korea.

In a statement to EW, Hustler founder and chairman Larry Flynt implied that no level of foreign backlash could persuade them to not release the parody.

“If Kim Jong-un and his henchmen were upset before, wait till they see the movie we’re going to make,” Flynt said. “I’ve spent a lifetime fighting for the First Amendment, and no foreign dictator is going to take away my right to free speech.”

After many in Hollywood had expressed their disapproval of Sony for inhibiting free speech and “validating terrorist actions,” President Obama on Friday admitted he thinks the company “made a mistake,” saying, “I would have told them, do not get into a pattern in which you are intimidated by these kind of criminal attacks.” CEO Michael Lynton quickly responded saying they had “no alternative,” noting that theaters had already decided not to show it. “We have not caved, we have not given in, we have persevered and we have not backed down,” he said in an interview with CNN.
