North Korea Very Unhappy With “The Interview”
James Franco & Seth Rogen are teaming up once again to bring us ‘The Interview’.
If you haven’t heard about the controversial movie, it’s certainly making headlines these days, so allow me to fill you in.
In the movie, Franco plays a TV host and Rogen plays his producer. They have been given the assignment to interview North Korean dictator, Kim Jong-Un. Nothing contraversial about that. Until the U.S. Government steps in and adds to their assignment. Not only do they have to interview the dictator, but they now have to assassinate him.
Basically, that’s the movie.
As you can imagine, this doesn’t sit too well with Kim Jong-Un or the nation of North Korea. In fact, they are taking it extremely serious.
Yesterday, a North Korean spokesperson had some interesting & scary things to say. He said, quote, “Making and releasing a movie on a plot to hurt our top-level leadership is the most blatant act of terrorism and war and will absolutely not be tolerated.”
He went on by saying, quote, ”If the US administration allows and defends the showing of the film, a merciless counter-measure will be taken.”
Who knows if this will effect the release of the movie in any way. Judging by Seth Rogen’s twitter feed, he isn’t very worried. The actor tweeted the following yesterday.
People don’t usually wanna kill me for one of my movies until after they’ve paid 12 bucks for it. Hiyooooo!!!
