The unofficial spokesperson for Kim Jong Un responded to James Franco and Seth Rogen’s movie, “The Interview”. Needless to say, the response from the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea is less than favorable considering that the best buds join a plot to murder a genuine head of state in their latest film. Yup, the boys just released a trailer for “The Interview”, featuring the duo heading to North Korea on a mission to kill Kim Jong-Un.
Update: North Korea Will Declare War on U.S. Over Kim Jong Un Assassination Plot in Seth Rogen’s Film
Kim Myong-chol, the executive director of The Centre for North Korea-U.S. Peace, said in an interview with Telegraph.co.uk:
“There is a special irony in this storyline as it shows the desperation of the US government and American society,”
“A film about the assassination of a foreign leader mirrors what the US has done in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria and Ukraine,”
“And let us not forget who killed [President John F.] Kennedy – Americans.”
“In fact, President [Barack] Obama should be careful in case the US military wants to kill him as well,”
Kim Myong-chol is also of the opinion that Hollywood movies as “full of assassinations and executions” and “British films are far better and more realistic.”
Rogen tweeted the following response to the commotion:
“Apparently Kim Jong Un plans on watching #TheInterview. I hope he likes it!!”
Franco stars as 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.”
