The entertainment world has been somewhat shaken by the situation over at Disney, in which one of the studio's biggest summer blockbuster tentpoles, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men tell No Tales has been taken hostage by hackers. The industry is watching how the situation is unfolding, as Disney CEO Bob Iger is taking a hard stance against the hackers. In the meantime, Zack Snyder, director of Justice League (one of Warner Bros.' biggest tentpoles of the year) has advice for how filmmakers can avoid such situations, going forward.
Speaking with TMZ, Snyder said that, "Maybe they're going to go back to shooting more on -- I mean I shoot on film, but we finish digitally. But maybe we gotta finish everything on film. It's analogue, so you can't steal it."
When it comes to protecting the safety and secrecy of the DC Superhero movie universe, Snyder stated:
"We've always been really intense with security and trying to keep things as close and careful as we can - but in this world you never know, now, right? Seems like anybody can get hacked. I don't know if there's a totally safe way to do it."
You can watch the full interview with Zack Snyder, below. In it, the divisive DC Movie director also talks about what is going on with the Pirates hack situation. He also tries to sustain the positive outlook that the fans could rally to the side of Disney, by not watching version of Dead Men Tell No Tales that the hackers may release:
"It feels like it's a new era.... Hopefully if they do have it, and it's released, the fans will be like 'We're not doing it.'"
Check out how long Snyder keeps that optimistic outlook, once the reporter starts to question it:
Justice League: Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman's selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes-Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash-it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
