North Korea is mad at Seth Rogen and James Franco. The country’s supreme leader, Kim Jong-un, has denounced their upcoming film, The Interview. Which makes sense, really, given that The Interview is about a would-be journalist (Franco) and his producer (Rogen) who are given the chance to interview the dictator. But a clandestine organization sees an opportunity there, and recruits the pair to assassinate Kim instead. Pretty easy to understand, then, why the leader wouldn’t be all that into the film.

Here’s the first trailer for The Interview, which is the second film from co-directors Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg. Rogen and James Franco star in this follow-up to This Is the End, with Franco playing a talk show host who is sent to North Korea to interview Kim Jong-un. Franco heads out, with his producer (Rogen) in tow, but is first recruited by the CIA to assassinate the dictator. And then things get more complicated. Lizzy Caplan and Randall Park co-star.

When you’re one of the most popular comedic stars in the world, things tend to get a bit busy. Right now Seth Rogen is promoting the hilarious Neighbors, which opens May 9. He then has to finish his second co-directorial gig, The Interview, out in October. He’s also working on an animated film called Sausage Party, and his second film with director Jonathan Levine and co-star Joseph Gordon-Levitt was just slotted for a December 2015 release.
That’s not the half of it. While those are the next three things immediately on Rogen’s schedule, he’s also simultaneously developing numerous other projects. We asked Rogen about the most anticipated of his upcoming projects, and have the updates below. He told us how post on The Interview is going, how far along the Preacher TV show is, a bit more about this buddy cop comedy with Kevin Hart, as well as the Nintendo vs. Sega film Console Wars and James Franco‘s film about Tommy Wiseau‘s The Room.

The movies of 2013 were great and we’re all anxiously anticipating 2015, but let’s not overlook 2014. While the upcoming calendar isn’t packed as full of blockbusters that make film fans salivate, 2014 has some pretty awesome looking movies from several of the best filmmakers in the world. It has its share of massive franchise films too and while maybe they’re not Star Wars, Jurassic Park, Terminator or Batman fighting Superman, I’ll take Christopher Nolan, Paul Thomas Anderson, Cameron Crowe, Wes Anderson, the Wachowksis and David Fincher any day.
Below, read my top ten anticipated films of 2014. Read More »
Here’s a chance for Dennis Rodman to get back into movies. Columbia reportedly likes Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg‘s apocalyptic comedy This is the End so much that it wants another comedy from the duo. And so they are now set to direct, with Rogen starring, in The Interview. The film may also involve Rogen’s Pineapple Express and This is the End co-star James Franco, in a plot that would cast Rogen as a TV producer who ends up embroiled in a plot to kill the leader of North Korea. Maybe big North Korea fan Rodman can be in the background somewhere as the action unfolds. Read More »
