The Interview is an actual real-life movie starring Hollywood stars James Franco and Seth Rogen which features as its main premise a plot to kill Kim Jong-un. Yes the very much actually real supreme leader of the rather militant North Korea.
So, that's a bit of a strange line to be treading for a comedy...
Anyway, the movie clearly wants to trade on the rapport between Rogen and Franco that was set up by This is the End so it casts the attractive one as a talk show host and the glasses wearing one as his producer. When the manage to land an interview with KJu they also get recruited by the CIA to off the leader. Can I get another erk!?
Here's the teaser trailer.
Is this a satire too far for the guys? That remains to be seen but there's a sense of scale and randomness to the trailer which suggests it might be a massive mess of a film. Or create an actual war.
Seth Rogen co-directs with This is the End partner Evan Goldberg and they also scripted.
See it in cinemas in October.
