Best buds James Franco and Seth Rogen are well-known for their controversial comedy flicks that seems to drawn audiences with an acquired taste for their shenanigans. The boys just released a trailer for “The Interview”, featuring the duo heading to North Korea on a mission to kill Kim Jong-Un. The clip features hilarious moments with Franco a talk show host, and Rogen his producer as they go to “the most dangerous country on earth” to interview the world’s most notorious dictator. What started out as a very dangerous business trip became even more hellish when they are recruited by the CIA to assist with the plans to take down the infamous leader.
“Neighbors” helmer Evan Goldberg is back for another run with Rogen who also starred in the college humor comedy. Franco and Rogen are joined by Lizzy Caplan, Randall Park, and Timothy Simons. “The Interview” is set to be released October 10 this year.
Official synopsis for ‘The Interview’:
“In the action-comedy The Interview, Dave Skylark (James Franco) and his producer Aaron Rapoport (Seth Rogen) run the popular celebrity tabloid TV show “Skylark Tonight.” When they discover that North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un is a fan of the show, they land an interview with him in an attempt to legitimize themselves as journalists. As Dave and Aaron prepare to travel to Pyongyang, their plans change when the CIA recruits them, perhaps the two least-qualified men imaginable, to assassinate Kim Jong-un.”
