The irony is delicious, but Disney are less than amused that hackers have obtained a full copy of the unreleased 'Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales' and are ransoming it for an undisclosed sum.
According to Deadline Hollywood, Disney is currently working with the FBI and are refusing to pay the "enormous" ransom that is being demanded. The unnamed hacking group have threatened to release the film incrementally is their demands aren't met. The hack is not believed to be related to recent WannaCry ransomware attack, but could be related to the recent leak of unreleased 'Orange is the New Black' episodes which were apparently sourced from a Hollywood post-production facility.
'Dead Men Tell No Tales' is set to hit theatres in 2D, 3D and IMAX across the world on May 26th 2017.
