Seth Rogen on ‘The Interview’ Release: ‘Freedom Has Prevailed’

After keeping mum while the saga of “The Interview” unfolded, Seth Rogen and James Franco took to Twitter to express their excitement that the film will indeed bow on select screens on Christmas day.

Rogen, who co-directed, co-wrote and stars in the film about bumbling journalists attempting to assassinate Kim Jong-un of North Korea, tweeted that “Freedom has prevailed!”

Evan Goldberg, who co-wrote and co-directed with creative partner Rogen, expressed that they were “humbled & overwhelmed” by the outpouring of support for their film.

Franco, known for his eccentric social media presence, even joked about President Obama flubbing his name.

Randall Park, who plays Jong-un in “The Interview,” also thanked fans on Twitter.

Sony had announced on Dec. 17 that it would pull “The Interview” from theaters after the studio was hacked and received threats of physical violence for distributing the film. The FBI has since confirmed that North Korea was linked to the hacking.
