Someone better get Dennis Rodman on the phone. The BBC has reported that a North Korean foreign ministry spokesman issued a statement regarding the upcoming action-comedy The Interview that is set to release this fall. In the film, James Franco and Seth Rogen play celebrity talk show personalities that are recruited by the CIA to assassinate Kim Jong-un. The North Korean spokesperson told the The Korean Central News Agency that "Making and releasing a movie on a plot to hurt our top-level leadership is the most blatant act of terrorism and war and will absolutely not be tolerated."


He added that the "reckless US provocative insanity" of mobilising a "gangster filmmaker" to challenge the North's leadership was triggering "a gust of hatred and rage" among North Korean people and soldiers.

"If the US administration allows and defends the showing of the film, a merciless counter-measure will be taken," the spokesman was quoted as saying.
If we do move to war, I believe we should send Franco and Rogan to the front lines.
