“The Interview”: Orgy Scene with Kim Jong Un and James Franco Might Have Caused Concern

Share

One thing that Kim Jong Un may or may not have objected to in “The Interview”: after a night of debauchery, he’s seen shirtless in bed with James Franco’s also-shirtless Dave Skylark character and a bevy of beauties. In the screenwriter Dan Sterling’s 2012 original version, this is how the scene read:

INT. PRIVATE LOUNGE – DAY
Dave and Kim are in a bed naked, with the four women.
They’re all playing MORTAL KOMBAT

Right so you’re thinking, either lucky Kim, or he should be so lucky. It’s hard to say if North Korea’s fearless leader would feel the same way. Certainly, the original screenplay made it seem like quite a night had occurred. By this time, Franco’s Dave and President Kim have cried together, shared their love of puppies, and Katy Perry.

Many parts of the original screenplay were altered so as not to cause World War III.

Here’s one exchange:
NARRATOR (V.O.)
Our Beloved Leader is one of the
world’s most accomplished artists.
Moreover, he is the most fierce
warrior. As well, he is a genius
at business and also medicine and
agriculture.
SETH
(sotto to Dave)
“Moreover, he is champion at
fellatio. He can suck a 12 inch
*** while ice-skating backwards.”
Seth turns to Dave and sees that he looks spooked.

More to come….
