Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg’s controversial comedy The Interview is headed to Blu-ray and DVD on February 17! The “Freedom Edition” Blu-ray disc comes packed with 90 minutes of bonus feature content, including 14 deleted scenes, multiple behind-the-scenes featurettes, a seven-minute blooper reel that shows off gags and goofs from the set, as well as three “line-o-ramas” (where cast shot several alternate takes of jokes during filming). Also included on both Blu-ray and DVD are The Discovery Channel TV special “Naked and Afraid,” starring James Franco and Seth Rogen, as well as commentary by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg.
Dave Skylark (Franco) and his producer Aaron Rapoport (Rogen) run the popular celebrity tabloid TV show “Skylark Tonight.” When they discover that North Korean leader Kim Jong-un is a fan of the show, they land an interview with him in an attempt to legitimize themselves as journalists. As Dave and Aaron prepare to travel to Pyongyang, their plans change when the CIA recruits them, perhaps the most unlikely candidates, to ‘take out’ Kim Jong-un.
Directed by Rogen & Goldberg from a screenplay by Dan Sterling and a story by Rogen Goldberg & Sterling, The Interview is executive produced by Franco, Sterling, Kyle Hunter, Ariel Shaffir, Shawn Williamson and Ben Waisbren. Rogen, Goldberg and Weaver also serve as producers.
