Seth Rogen and collaborator Evan Goldberg are busy these days–they brought out “Neighbors” earlier this year (our TOH interview here) and are hard at work on several other projects. Up next, though, is “The Interview,” in which Rogen and James Franco star as a TV reporter and his producer who get a chance to interview North Korean Kim Jong-Un and are then contracted by the CIA to assassinate the dictator.
That’s right. Seth Rogen and James Franco as inane pseudo-spies in a foreign country. You know where this is going. (“Ishtar” anyone?) In an interview with The Playlist last month, Rogen called the film–which he wrote and directed with Goldberg– “our ‘3 Days of the Condor’ with idiots in it.”
The brand new teaser for the film shows just how much fun Rogen and Franco can have together. And maybe, despite its off-the-wall premise, the two actors’ chemistry will be just enough to make this crazy project a hit.
“The Interview” hits theaters this fall. Full poster and trailer below:
