Seth Rogen, James Franco slammed by North Korea for ‘The Interview’

The two are tasked with assassinating Kim Jong Un in the film.

North Korea is no fan of the upcoming Seth Rogen-James Franco joint, “The Interview” — but Kim Jung Un will probably see it anyway, according to Kim Myong-choi, who is the director of Pyongyang’s Center for North Korea-U.S. Peace and a spokesman for the Supreme Leader.

In the film, Rogen and Franco play talk show hosts assigned by the CIA to assassinate Kim Jong Un since he is a fan of their show .

But in an interview with the Daily Telegraph, Myong-choi said there is a “special type of irony in the storyline” given the United States’ alleged role in foreign assassinations.

“It shows the desperation of the U.S. government and American society,” Myong-choi said.

“In fact, President Obama should be careful in case the U.S. military want to kill him as well.”

The creepiness of that statement aside, Myong-choi said Kim Jong Un will probably see the film anyway.

Rogen tweeted a photo from the film and wrote, “Apparently Kim Jong Un plans on watching #TheInterview. I hope he likes it!”

Just in case you were wondering, Myong-choi is more of a James Bond fan — although not 2005’s “Die Another Day,” in which North Koreans were the villains.
