The Interview is an American Political comedy film, the move is directed by directed by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg. This will be the second time that the duo has directed a movie together. The duo last work together for the the move ‘This is the end’. The lead screenplay for the movie is done by Dan Sterling. The interview is staring James Franco and Rogen and as the famous and successful journalists instructed to assassinate North Korean leader Kim Jongun. The character of Korean Leader is played by Randall Park.
Initially, Columbia had delayed the release of ‘The interview’ from October 10 to December 25. However, according to the reports the movie is edited to make it more acceptable in the states of North Korea. In the early November, the computer systems of parent company Sony Pictures entertainment were severely hacked by the “Guardians of Peace”.
Rogen and Goldberg developed the idea for the production of movie in the late 2000s, joking about what would happen if a journalist was required to assassinate a world leader. The duo (ROgen and Goldberg) picked North Korea leader Km Jong. However, they put the project on hold upon when Kim died and his elder son Jong-un assumed the power of estate in late 2011.
Initially, Sony pushed the release date for the film from October 10 to December 25, 2014.Further On December 10, Sony announced that the movie would not be released in Japan. The reason was live-action comedy movie does not often perform well in the Asia-Pacific region. The film would be released only in New Zealand and Australia. The first premier for the movie was held in the state of Los Angeles on December 2014.
The movie starts with a thought of experiment. What if, tomorrow, the North Korean leader demonstrated that there was a nuclear missile that could destroy the whole United State from across the Pacific? The resulting story plot is a mess, but as a political satire it obviously hit its mark. Even this can be the reason why such a terrible flick started a culture war.
The real comedy stars James Franco and Seth Rogen as the duo of journalist who, under the guise of shooting a television interview, were tasked by the CIA to plan a death event and murder of North Korean leader Kim. The other major theatrical chains have announced that they were planning to cancel all screening effects of the film after the group claiming responsibility for the recent Sony hack had threatened some acts of violent terrorism at locations that plan on screening the film. After facing a lot of controversy, the movie is finally released.
