The subject of the spy comedy farce, North Korea, is not amused by the fictionalized attempt by characters played by James Franco and Seth Rogen to attempt to assassinate Kim Jong-un in The Interview. That’s what Kim Myong-choi, executive director for the Centre of North Korea-U.S. Peace, which we had no idea was a thing that existed, thinks anyway.
Still, Kim Jong-un reportedly plans on seeing it anyway. Myong-choi also added the dig “that James Bond movies are better than Hollywood films.”
Perhaps, North Korea will make a movie in response in a sort of “filmic cold war” and this all becomes something that Armando Iannucci fictionalizes?
