THE INTERVIEW is an upcoming action-comedy film directed by Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen (This Is the End), co-written with Dan Sterling. The film stars James Franco, Seth Rogen, Lizzy Caplan, Randall Park.
In the film, Dave Skylark (Franco) and his producer Aaron Rapoport (Rogen) 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.
