James Franco and Seth Rogen are stars of a celebrity tabloid show who are headed to their biggest interview yet, with the leader of North Korea, Kim Jong-Un. For reasons other than the interview itself, this is the biggest interview of their lives. They also believe that Kim Jong-Un can talk to dolphins…
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.
The Interview is stocked up with some familiar accredited names. The film is directed by both Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg. Leave it up to Seth Rogen and James Franco to create a movie that could spark a new war… Honestly though, if Team America didn’t do that, then I think we are fine.
