Seth Rogen to Direct and Star in THE INTERVIEW with James Franco

Seth Rogen is set to co-direct and star in a new comedy for Columbia Pictures called The Interview. It looks like it will also reteam him with James Franco, who could end up in the lead role. 

The two actors previously starred in Pineapple Express and the upcoming comedy This Is the End, which Rogen directed with his longtime collaborator Evan Goldberg. I've heard that This is the End is an extremely funny, irreverent movie, and has a lot of Jewish and Christian comedy in it.

Goldberg co-wrote the script for The Interview with Rogen, and he will also co-direct the movie with him as well. The studio loved what they did with This is the End, and they are excited about working with them again on this film. 

According to THR the story "revolves around a handsome talk show host (potentially Franco) and his producer (Rogen) who find themselves in way over their heads when they get involved in a plot to assassinate the prime minister of North Korea."

I'm a fan of all these guys' comedy style, and this sounds like it could be another funny movie to look forward to.
