A North Korean foreign ministry spokesman has called an upcoming Seth Rogen movie an “act of war,” according to BBC.

The title wasn’t mentioned, but a movie with a plot similar to what the spokesman referenced is due in October.

“The Interview” is an upcoming action-comedy film starring Seth Rogen and James Franco. They play a talk show host and producer who are invited to interview Kim Jong-un. They are subsequently asked by the Central Intelligence Agency to assassinate him.

The North Korea spokesman was quoted by the state KCNA news agency as saying, “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.”

The spokesman also said the movie would trigger “a gust of hatred and rage” among North Korean people.

“If the U.S. administration allows and defends the showing of the film, a merciless counter-measure will be taken,” the spokesman was quoted as saying.

    Huh? Who in DPRK can afford to see a movie? They can’t even afford food!

    We assassinate our “president” in movies all the time. No one goes to jail for it. He should be glad he’s getting recognition for how much people hate him! At least his is a comedy, not a suspense thriller. I swear he just goes off about any little thing.
