The News: Kim Jong-Un vs. Rogen & Franco
Kim Jong-Un hasn’t been happy about the new Rogen/Franco film The Interview. Granted it is about two undercover journalists’ (played by Rogen and Franco) assassination attempt against the North Korean dictator, but you’d think that someone who claims to speak to dolphins and hangs out with Dennis Rodman would have a sense of humor about these sorts of things. Jong-Un has already called the film “a blatant act of terrorism and war,” and now North Korea has written a letter to the United Nations saying that the US should (underscore “must”) stop the film’s release immediately. Seems like he doesn’t know that nothing can stop Rogen and Franco, not even Your Highness.
