Seth Rogen & James Franco as Propaganda on 'The Interview' Poster
"From the western capitalist pigs who brought you Neighbors and This is The End" comes this new comedy, The Interview. Wait until you see the trailer. Columbia has released the first poster, a propaganda-esque design, for The Interview starring pals Seth Rogen & James Franco. So what's going on here? Well, Franco plays a talk show host of a celebrity show (Rogen plays his producer), who lands an interview with the North Korean leader, and is drafted by the CIA to assassinate him. Of course, craziness ensues when they actually go to North Korea for the interview. This is going to be wild, and I love how absurd this looks.
Here's the first poster for Evan Goldberg & Seth Rogen's The Interview, unveiled by Goldberg on Twitter:
The Interview is written and directed by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg (of This is the End previously, and the co-writers of Superbad, The Green Hornet, Pineapple Express), with a story the duo wrote with "The Daily Show" scribe Dan Sterling. In the comedy, James Franco plays a handsome talk show host of "Skylark Tonight" who finds himself and his producer (Rogen) into a dangerous CIA organized plot to assassinate the leader of North Korea under the guise of a television interview. Columbia Pictures will be releasing Rogen & Goldberg's new comedy The Interview starting October 14th this year. Watch the first teaser trailer here!
