(NEWSER) – North Korea continues to do a fine job of promoting an upcoming flick with Seth Rogen and James Franco. Pyongyang has taken its complaint about The Interview all the way to the United Nations, reports Reuters. In the movie, Rogen and Franco play a TV producer and host who land an interview with Kim Jong Un and get hired by the CIA to kill him. In a letter to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon, the North declares that the premise "should be regarded as the most undisguised sponsoring of terrorism as well as an act of war." (The North used similar language in an earlier diatribe.) Rogen is taking this about as seriously as you might expect: "People don't usually wanna kill me for one of my movies until after they've paid 12 bucks for it," he tweeted a while back. The movie is out in October, notes the Telegraph.
