Filmmmaker Michael Moore decided to use the opportunity to ask the hackers for a favor.

He tweeted: “Dear Sony Hackers: now that u run Hollywood, I’d also like less romantic comedies, fewer Michael Bay movies and no more Transformers.”

He later added: “Oh, hackers, one more thing – I lost like $180K on [my film] ‘Canadian Bacon.’ Can u do the opposite of what u just did & get it back IN to theaters?”
