If you didn't see The Interview during its brief theatrical run or during its record-setting VOD debut, the controversial comedy is coming to Netflix.

According to Netflix's investor letter, the Seth Rogen and James Franco comedy that caused an international incident – and had been written off by many as a film that would never see the light of day – will be available on the streaming service starting Jan. 24.

"We are thrilled to offer exclusively the controversial comedy The Interview to our US and Canadian members," the investor letter reads. "Just thirty days after it debuted in theaters and pay-per-view."

A week before its scheduled Christmas Day bow, Sony canceled the release of The Interview after most major theater chains said they wouldn't screen the film in the wake of terrorist threats made by cyber-hackers.

However, after blowback from celebrities and the movie-going public, Sony relented and gave the film a limited release and pushed the comedy on pay-per-view and Video On Demand services.

The Interview eventually earned $6 million theatrically, and over $40 million through online rentals and purchases. The film is set for a DVD and Blu-Ray release on Feb. 17.

Another outcome from the Sony hacking scandal was the release of a number of secret celebrity aliases. Check out the video below for a look at some of the crazy movie star codenames.
