“It was the biggest fucking headache,” said Smith, who has worked on numerous movies, including “Hannah Montana” and “Dumb and Dumber” and was cast in “The Interview” as a hacker.
“We were trying to come up with a plan for the movie and I was just like, ‘This is going to be the worst possible nightmare, the worst thing I could possibly imagine, the biggest fuckin nightmare, to be honest with you,'” he said.
“The entire time I was thinking about how I was going to do it and how I could go into that kind of darkness with no idea how to get out of it.”
The film was scheduled to be released in theaters in September, but Sony decided to cut its theatrical release to make way for the new film.
Sony said the film’s script was “an attempt to satirize” the recent mass shootings in the United States.
“Our thoughts are with the families and loved ones of those killed in the shootings at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida, and in the mass shooting in San Bernardino, California,” Sony said in a statement.
“As an independent studio, Sony has been and will continue to strive to make films that reflect the diverse voices of our fans and that reflect our commitment to freedom of expression.
We will continue our commitment of creating and distributing quality movies, and we are committed to working together to prevent violence and hatred from taking place in our communities.”
Smith said he is working with his family and other friends to prepare for the filming of the movie, and that he hopes to start filming in the coming weeks.
“I’m trying to be as honest as I can,” he said, adding that he has no plans to go back to his job as a video producer.
“But if I can get a job and make a living in the entertainment industry, that would be great.”
