Some feathers were bound to be ruffled when North Korea caught wind of the premise of The Interview, a film in which characters played by Seth Rogen and James Franco attempt to assassinate the president of North Korea, Kim Jung-Un.

North Korea’s really sensitive about that kind of thing.

After they promised “merciless retaliation” if the film gets released (Oh, we’re so scared, North Korea), Sony is hurrying to make some CGI changes prior to the film’s pushed-back December 25th release date. The scope of those changes is perhaps the funniest aspect of this whole story. They’re altering some military badges and buttons on North Korean soldiers that pay respect to the fallen Kim Jung-Il, because they feel that those might be in poor taste in a film about KILLING HIS SON.

The funny thing is, that seems to be weird enough that that would be exactly the thing that pisses North Korea off. Similarly, the studio is “considering” changing a scene in which Lil’ Kim’s face melts off in slow motion.

Yeah, that might be something you want to look into in order to avoid that merciless retaliation they’ve been touting.

‘Family Guy’ Creator Seth McFarlane in ABC’S ‘Flash Forward’ With Joseph Fiennes? http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/family-guy-creator-seth-macfarlane-in-abcs-flash-forward-with-joseph-fiennes/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/family-guy-creator-seth-macfarlane-in-abcs-flash-forward-with-joseph-fiennes/#comments Tue, 19 May 2009 22:09:36 +0000 Reza F. This Fall, ABC will premiere its hour-long drama, "Flash Forward," which stars Joseph Fiennes and chronicles the aftermath of a global event in which everyone in the world blacks out for 2 minutes, 17 seconds, and then has mysterious visions of six months... into the future. After the jump, watch this über-expository clip that pretty much explains the entire show, and then tell us at "Family Guy" creator (and voice of pretty much all the male characters) Seth MacFarlane isn't in this scene.  The king of TV show flashbacks in a show about flash fowards?  TNT may know drama.  But ABC knows irony.
