Are Seth Rogen and James Franco about to start an international incident? Because that would terrifying hilarious.
A spokesman for the North Korean regime this week condemned one of Hollywod's greatest bromances, days after the trailer dropped for The Interview. In the comedy they play reporters who get an exclusive interview with Kim Jong Un, only to be tapped by the U.S. government to assassinate the Glorious Leader.
A spokesman for Kim Jong Un released a statement to the The Telegraph:
“There is a special irony in this storyline as it shows the desperation of the US government and American society,” he told The Telegraph.
“A film about the assassination of a foreign leader mirrors what the US has done in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria and Ukraine,” he added. “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 said.
The spokesman went on to say that British films, such as the James Bond franchise, are better than American films, but also noted that Kim Jong Un would most likely watch The Interview anyway.
The Interview is set for a an Oct. 10 release.
