Did the Sony Hack Sack An NFL Movie

Posted by:

If anyone at Sony Pictures thought the damage done by the hackers to the studio nearly a year ago was firmly behind them, think again.

Emails dredged up by the New York Times on Tuesday of communications among Sony executives discussing the upcoming movie “Concussion” suggests unspecified edits were made to avoid angering the NFL.

“Concussion” tells the true story of Bennet Omalu, a researcher who discovers that repeated head trauma suffered by pro football players led to degenerative brain disease. Played by Will Smith, Omalu is depicted going up against a league bureaucracy unwilling to acknowledge the problem.
