Seth Rogen is coming off a successful directorial debut with This Is The End, which was easily one of the better comedies of 2013. He and his directing-writing partner Evan Goldberg are currently shooting their next film The Interview in Vancouver, which stars Seth, James Franco, Lizzy Caplan (Cloverfield), Diana Bang, Randall Park and rumored actress Jamie Chung (Hangover 3, Sin City: A Dame To Kill For) . It focuses on a television personality (Franco) who is invited to interview the leader of North Korea, while in the country Skylark and his producer (Rogen) get mixed up in an assassination plot to kill to the Prime Minister. The Interview is aiming for a release date of October 10th, 2014.
We have our first look at the film from set photos (thanks to JustJared and HuffingtonPost), and it looks like a rainy Vancouver is doubling for North Korea. Seth is also posting behind the scenes images from his Facebook account. It looks like the film will have more in common with Pineapple Express than This Is The End, being a wrong-place-wrong-time action comedy.
