James Franco and Seth Rogen's 'The Interview' Slammed by North Korea
Kim Myong Chol says the story about the assassination attempt of Kim Jong Un 'shows the desperation of the U.S. government and American society.'


New Hollywood comedy film "The Interview" is blasted by Kim Myong Chol, the unofficial spokesperson for Kim Jong Un. Coming from the men behind "Neighbors", the movie follows James Franco and Seth Rogen heading to North Korea and plotting to kill the leader.

"There is a special irony in this storyline as it shows the desperation of the U.S. government and American society," Myong Chol told The Guardian. "A film about the assassination of a foreign leader mirrors what the U.S. has done in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria and Ukraine."

"And let us not forget who killed [President John F] Kennedy - Americans," he continued. "In fact, President [Barack] Obama should be careful in case the U.S. military wants to kill him as well." He added, "James Bond is a good character and those films are much more enjoyable."

Franco and Rogen play a talk show host and his producer respectively. They are sent to the North Korea to interview the dictator, but when they are recruited by CIA and get involved in a plot to assassinate the prime minister of the Asian country, the duo finds themselves in way over their heads.

The film will hit theaters across the nation on October 10. In response to the backlash, Rogen tweeted, "Apparently Kim Jong Un plans on watching #TheInterview. I hope he likes it!!"
