North Korea is a rittle grumpy its supreme leader is being assassinated in the upcoming movie, “The Interview”.
Starring Seth Rogen and James Franco, the movie is about two talk show hosts who get to travel to North Korea and interview Kim Jong-un. Realistically, the CIA recruits the two, fledgling James Bonds in the making to assassinate poor Kim. (RELATED: James Franco And Seth Rogen Plot To Kill Kim Jong Un In ‘The Interview’ [VIDEO])
In an exclusive interview with The Telegraph, Kim Myong-chol, an unofficial spokesman for the regime, dismissed the movie as “desperation” and “irony.”
“There is a special irony in this storyline as it shows the desperation of the US government and American society,” Myong-chol said.
He was also quick to point out that President Obama should be looking over his back, considering who killed John F. Kennedy. “Let us not forget who killed [President John F.] Kennedy – Americans,” he said. “In fact, President [Barack] Obama should be careful in case the US military wants to kill him as well.”
Good thing the CIA doesn’t actually send real operatives on missions, just talk show hosts.
Previews have garnered mixed feelings, with some expressing concern that the movie could “stir tensions” with the traditionally docile and uncooperative regime.
“I understand this is a comedy, but the last thing we need is a movie that mocks North Korea, let alone about assassinating their president,” a Yahoo Movies commentator said. “It will only stir tensions further.”
“The Interview” comes out in theaters on October 10.
