Sony Pictures co-chair Amy Pascal quits after email hack

Friday, 06 February 2015 - 8:49

Sony Pictures' Amy Pascal has stepped down as co-chair of Sony's movie studio following a debilitating cyber attack that revealed her private emails.

Pascal will start a production company that will launch in May 2015.

She has already apologised for certain revelations that came as a result of the leaked emails.

Last month, Sony condemned the "vicious" attack, which led it to suspend the release of the film 'The Interview'.
