James Franco and Seth Rogen’s new movie ‘The Interview’ is hated by North Korea.

Kim Jong-Un the current leader in North Korea, is not amused by Seth Rogen and James Franco in their new movie, “The Interview.” However, the North Korean dictator said that he will still probably watch the movie.

The Columbia Pictures feature film centers on James Franco as a late-night talk show host who scores an interview of a lifetime with Kim Jong-Un (Randall Park). But, the CIA decides to turn the host and his producer, Seth Rogen, into assassins.

“A film about the assassination of a foreign leader mirrors what the U.S. has done in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria and Ukraine,” said Kim Myong-chol, the executive director of The Centre for North Korea-U.S. Peace, in an interview with The London Telegraph.

Kim Myong-chol is an unoffical spokesperson for North Korea, despite living in Japan added words of caution for current U.S. leadership.  “Let us not forget who killed [President John F.] Kennedy – Americans,” he said. “In fact, President Obama should be careful in case the U.S. military wants to kill him as well.” He continued, “it shows the desperation of the U.S. government and American society.”

North Korean state media has described “The Interview” as “dirty and cursed,” according to the Telegraph.

Seth Rogen, co-wrote, co-directed, and co-produced the comedy. He later tweeted about the interview, saying:

The Interview” hits theater on October 2nd.
