Walt Disney CEO Bog Iger has revealed that hackers claim to have stolen access to an unreleased Disney movie.
The hackers are reportedly demanding a ransom in exchange for not publishing the movie.
Iger made comments about the alleged theft to ABC employees during a town hall meeting in New York on today.
The fifth movie in the franchise, which is estimated to have made $3.72 billion since 2003, was originally set to open in theaters next Friday
Iger did not say which film is being threatened for release, but it is being reported that it's 'Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales,' which is set to open in theaters on May 26.
Iger reportedly said that the hackers are threatening to release the first five minutes of the film if their demands are not met, and then the rest in 20-minute segments until they are paid.
The final sum they are demanding is unknown, but Iger said they have asked that a large amount be paid in Bitcoin.
