North Korea to Seth Rogen & James Franco: Release That Movie and DIE!!!!!

by at . Comments

North Korea denounced Seth Rogen and James Franco's upcoming film, The Interview, for a second time yesterday, threatening the U.S. over its release.

A statement released by North Korea's official news agency, KCNA, said The Interview was created by "gangster filmmakers" and should not be screened.

"The act of making and screening such a movie that portrays an attack on our top leadership is the most wanton act of terror and act of war, and is absolutely intolerable."

The film, which hits theaters in October, features Rogen and Franco as a talk show host duo hired to go undercover and assassinate Kim Jong Un.

Kim is played by actor Randall Park. The real Kim is not a fan of Rogen and Franco's movies, although he'll probably see the flick anyway if it's released.

Which it had better not be, the rogue state warns.

Added the North Korea spokesman: "If the U.S. administration allows and defends the showing of the film, a merciless counter-measure will be taken."

Merciless. Countermeasures.

The nation likened the project to U.S. society's "desperation" and warned President Obama to "be careful in case the U.S. military wants to kill him as well."

Rogen appears to be taking it all in stride, joking earlier this week upon hearing that Kim Jong Un might watch the new movie, "I hope he likes it!!!!"

"People don't usually wanna kill me for one of my movies until after they've paid 12 bucks for it," the 32-year-old actor added on Wednesday. "Hiyooooo!!!"
