"This fall James Franco and Seth Rogen will attempt to assassinate Kim Jong Un." That's the tl;dr version of Sony's "The Interview," Rogen and Evan Goldberg's new film for the studio following last year's "This Is The End." Here's the actual plot summary, per the YouTube page:
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.
We're in, and that's without watching the funny trailer, which includes glimpses of Lizzy Caplan ("Freaks and Geeks" reunion!) and Randall Park as Kim Jong Un.
Check out a new poster for the film below. "The Interview" is out on Oct. 10.
