INTERVIEW: Gail Simone Guides 'Blockbuster Update' of Red Sonja, Vampirella and Dejah Thoris
Seth Rogen and James Franco have a license to kill.
The Pineapple Express and This is the End duo is back again for another action-packed adventure in The Interview. The comedy, directed by Rogen and his writing partner Evan Goldberg, follows a TV host (Franco) and his producer (Rogen) as they’re sent on an unexpected mission to assassinate a prominent political figure.
Check out the full trailer and synopsis below:
Dave Skylark and his producer Aaron Rapoport run the popular celebrity tabloid TV show “Skylark Tonight.” When they discover that North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un is a fan of the show, they land an interview with him in an attempt to legitimize themselves as journalists. As Dave and Aaron prepare to travel to Pyongyang, their plans change when the CIA recruits them – perhaps the two least-qualified men imaginable – to assassinate Kim Jong-un.
The Interview opens Oct. 11.
