It is a safe to say James Franco and Seth Rogen will not be stopping in at North Korea during their promotional tour for the new flick. The funnymen's latest feature, The Interview, depicts the pair trying to kill the country's Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un - and the totalitarian state is not amused.

In the film, James and Seth play talk show host and producer that have been chosen to interview the leader, who is played by American born Korean actor Randall Park. However, the US Government decides this is the perfect chance to put a stop to the highly criticised regime and recruits the duo to assassinate the Supreme Leader.

The unofficial spokesman for the North Korean regime says the assassination plot represents America's desperate foreign policy as a whole. He said, “There is a special irony in this storyline as it shows the desperation of the US government and American society.”

The spokesman says while Kim Jong-un might die in the end, North Korea's leader will still probably watch the film when it comes out in October.
