First Look: Seth Rogen and James Franco try to assassinate Kim Jong Un in Vancouver-shot 'The Interview'

Think Inglourious Basterds meets This Is The End, a play and parody on nearly everything Seth Rogen and James Franco could figure to jam into one screenplay.

That's what we'll get with The Interview it seems, the newest action-comedy with the long-time screen partners and stars, who have appeared together in everything from TV's Freaks and Geeks to Pineapple Express to last year's This Is The End.

In The Interview, the two play a TV host and producer tasked with assassinating North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un. The film was shot in Vancouver last winter, from October 10 to December 30, 2013.

Rogen is from Vancouver and attended Point Grey high school with Evan Goldberg, who co-directed and co-wrote The Interview with Rogen.
