A statement released by a North Korea's executive director of the Centre for North Korea-US Peace, Kim Myong-chol, said that "there is a special irony in [The Interview's] storyline as it shows the desperation of the US government and American society."
In The Interview Franco and Rogen play a talk show host and a producer who are asked by a CIA agent to assassinate Jong Un after managing to get an interview with him.
Myong-chol said in his statement that North Korea's "Supreme Leader" will likely watch the movie in spite of the story line, but not before adding that U.S. "President [Barack] Obama should be careful in case the US military wants to kill him as well."
The Interview, was co-written and co-directed by Rogen and Evan Goldberg. The film will be released October 10, 2014.
