Seth Rogen and James Franco Take on Kim Jong-un in "The Interview"assassination plot
James Franco and Seth Rogen play celebrity tabloid guys turned CIA agents in "The Interview."
It seems Seth Rogen and James Franco are following in the footsteps of Dennis Rodman.
The actors are starring in "The Interview," a comedy film about entertainment journalists-turned-CIA agents whose mission is to meet (and kill) North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un.
But is the new Franco and Rogen project based on the former NBA player's visits to the real Kim Jong-un? Hardly.
"[Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg] wrote a version of this script before Rodman went to North Korea," Franco said. "And then as this movie went into pre-production, Rodman started going over there. So it was a very strange coincidence that I think ultimately will make this movie somehow more legitimate," he added.
"The Interview" is set to premiere in theaters on October 10.
