VANCOUVER, BC—A year before their controversial comedy “The Interview” caught unprecedented heat, actors James Franco and Seth Rogen sat down on location to talk about their collaboration while filming here. (Rogen also serves as co-director, co-writer and is a producer on the film.)
On Wednesday, Sony Pictures Entertainment pulled the film from its scheduled December 25 theatrical release, after several large theater chains decided not to show the film out of concern for moviegoers’ safety following a threat of a Sept. 11, 2001-style attack on theaters by a group calling itself Guardians of Peace.
Unaware of the eventual firestorm their film would ignite, including a devastating hack of Sony Pictures’ computer network by an unknown attacker, the old friends spoke about making of the film.
