JAMES FRANCO AND SETH ROGEN TO ASSASSINATE KIM JUNG-UN
The Interview already making moves for the title of most ridiculous movie of the year based on its debut trailer. It stars Hollywood buddies James Franco and Seth Rogen and centres on a plot to kill none other than Kim Jong-un. Yes THE Kim Jongun.
The flick clearly wants to trade on the rapport between Rogen and Franco that was built up by This is the End, so it casts the attractive one as a talk show host and the Canadian one as his producer. When they manage to land an interview with KJu the CIA recruits them to off the controversial leader for them.
Is this a satire too far for the guys? That remains to be seen but there’s no doubting the potential of the set up for awkward comedy. Rogen and This is the End co-director partner up to helm a script they also penned together. If you need convincing that this is going to be ludicrous, be sure to check out the trailer and catch it in theatres this October.
