A new release date has not yet been announced. Sony's systems were breached by a hacking group Nov. 24, leading to a trove of leaked documents and emails. 

Director Tony Bui's thriller centers on a hacker (Sam Huntington) who is apprehended by the CIA and forms a team of renegades to help the organization capture its most dangerous targets. 

The Throwaways stars Caan (Las Vegas), Dillon (Entourage), Huntington (Being Human) and Katie McGrath (NBC's Dracula).
