Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg are back! The new red-band 'The Interview' trailer shows the duo, who brought us such classic debauchery as 'Superbad,' 'This Is the End' and 'Pineapple Express,' are already starting up some drama with their Kim Jong-un assassination story. If that premise alone isn't enough to make you gasp, how about some NSFW talk of "Matthew McConaughey goat f***," and getting "f***** by RoboCop"?
Hard to believe that author Chuck Palahniuk has had only two of his many novels adapted into films -- after the brilliant 'Fight Club,' there was only 'Avengers' star Clark Gregg's indie adaptation of 'Choke,' which not a whole lot of people saw. (It starred Sam Rockwell. It was fine.) But after several years and some failed attempts by others, actor/writer/director/professional college student/"artist" James Franco has officially optioned the rights to bring another Palahniuk novel to the big screen.
We may have to wait until Christmas to see James Franco and Seth Rogen in 'The Interview,' but the pair are already hard at work making sure that audiences are extremely, perhaps uncomfortably familiar with their characters through a 'Very Special VMA Special.'
Sony is digitally removing thousands of military decorations on the uniforms of the North Korean military characters. Apparently, showing these specific symbols, which honor Kim Jong Un and his late father Kim Jong Il, on film would be considered hugely offensive to North Korean government.
James Franco has never been one to shy away from selfies, even the kind he probably shouldn't be taking and putting on the internet. Over the years, he's developed a well-oiled system for making them work, especially the ones he takes with his eager fanbase.
'The Interview' trailer suggests that writer/directors Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg aren't taking it easy after 'This Is the End.' Rogen reunites with James Franco to star in the film, and the duo act as the world's worst spies as they head to North Korean with plans to kill Kim Jong-un.
One of the reasons why Mondo Posters have become a such a big thing in the geek community is that few modern posters pop these days. Bad photoshop, floating heads, few done with any sense of artistry. Which is why it's going to be awfully hard for a studio to produce a better poster than the one just released for writer/directors Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg's 'The Interview.'
James Franco is, to put it diplomatically, a bit of an odd duck. Sure, he's a very talented guy -- and one who has never balked at using his talents across a wide range of professions -- but he's also kind of a weirdo in plenty of situations, especially as they apply to social media. And David Letterman is not having it.
Young Dave Franco has always done an admirable job of drawing a line between himself and his arguably more famous big brother, James. While Dave dedicated his career to delivering steadily improving supporting performances in a bunch of comedic outings -- think '21 Jump Street' or 'Neighbors' -- James has spent the last few years doing, well, just a lot of things, including some questionable social media behavior.
While the films of Sofia Coppola often examine the world of young wealth -- see 'The Bling Ring' and 'Marie Antoinette' -- her niece, Gia, approaches coming of age from a different angle: the grittier, if you will, emotional lives teens lead while growing up in rural Palo Alto.
"I had just finished college and was kind of reminiscing on those years of high school," she told ScreenCrush in an interview. "I had enough distance where I could kind of look at it nostalgically," and it was the realistic experiences in James Franco's collection of short stories, titled 'Palo Alto,' she wanted to bring to the screen for her first directorial effort.
