How anyone could be pissed at James Franco is beyond me… I can understand people’s distaste for Seth Rogen, but James Franco??? Turns out the nation of North Korea is all kinds of pissed at the two taking issue with the content of the BFF’s latest movie, The Interview.
The film see the two play play Dave Skylark and Aaron Rapoport, journalists who score some one-on-one time with the dictator (played by The Five-Year Engagement‘s Randall Park), only to be roped into becoming unwilling would-be assassins. Well there’s no denying the film has ruffled a few feathers and North Korea has now officially declared the film to be “an act of war”, while at the same time making a sure thing at the box office.
An official spokesman from North Korea’s Foreign Ministry stated through state media that, should the US Government allow the film to be released, they will face a “stern” and “merciless” retaliation from North Korea.
The whole situation very much reminds me of something out of a South Park Episode. I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again, someone give Kim Jong-un a Snickers Bar!
Here’s the trailer…
So it seems gone are the days when people would go to war for land an oil… What’s your thoughts on the film, do you think it’s worth getting into a war over?
