North Korea is threatening war if the movie “The Interview” hits theaters. The movie, which stars Seth Rogen and James Franco, is about journalists that are plotting to kill Kim-Jong Un while undercover as journalists.
The movie led to multiple threats made against the U.S. government and filmmakers. A North Korean foreign ministry spokesperson said that the U.S. would be releasing an “act of war” and promised “merciless” retaliation.
The spokesperson said that “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 threats definitely gives a lot of publicity to the movie.
