Posted on

After Sony confirmed it was hacked on Nov. 25, information slowly began trickling out about a number of its films. And according to Bloomberg, some recent information reveals how much Seth Rogen and James Franco made for their upcoming film, The Interview.

Rogen, who co-wrote, co-directed, and stars in the film, took away more than $8.4 million, while Franco received $6.5 million for co-starring. Overall, the film reportedly cost $44 million to make, with $5,000 of that going toward a Kevin Federline cameo (of all things). Also on the budget list? A “table of weed, coke, pills and panties,” which came in at a whopping $241.

The Interview arrives in theaters Dec. 25.
