North Korea Isn’t a Fan of Seth Rogen and James Franco’s Kim Jong-Un Assassination Movie

Glorious Leader, commander of Best Korea, may be a little upset over James Franco and Seth Rogen’s upcoming film The Interview. The movie follows two talk show hosts who are recruited to assassinate Kim Jung-Un, the leader of North Korea, under the guise of an interview. People who don’t find the film so funny? North Korea. Who would have thought?

Kim Myong-chol, executive director of The Centre for North Korea-US Peace and an unofficial spokesman for the regime in Pyongyang, was dismissive.

“There is a special irony in this storyline as it shows the desperation of the US government and American society,” he told The Telegraph.

“A film about the assassination of a foreign leader mirrors what the US has done in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria and Ukraine,” he added. “And let us not forget who killed [President John F.] Kennedy – Americans.

“In fact, President [Barack] Obama should be careful in case the US military wants to kill him as well,” Kim Myong-chol said.

A spokesman for Kim Jong-Un says he’ll probably watch it. But he sure as hell doesn’t have to like it! *puts hands on hips, huffs* Myong-choi went on to say British films are much better explaining, “James Bond is a good character and those films are much more enjoyable.” Ouch, burn.
