Seth Rogen and James Franco to Live-Tweet 'The Interview'
Page (1) of 1 - 12/28/14||
|While the last-minute decision to distribute The Interview to indie cinemas and directly on video-on-demand diminished the controversial comedy's box office potential, the film's inventive release has also opened the door to a new way of presenting a movie: Seth Rogen, his writing/directing partner Evan Goldberg and James Franco will all live-tweet during The Interview Sunday starting at 2 p.m. PST. Rogen tweeted. "Join us! It'll be like Pop-UP Video!" Because the film is available on VOD, Rogen, Franco and Goldberg can synchronize the viewing experience of their just-released film, which would have been virtually impossible had The Interview been conventionally released. Given the uproar over the film – from being a catalyst for Sony cyber attack to inciting a war of words between the United States and North Korea – The Interview live-tweet should provide some insight into some of the chaos Rogen and Franco have been experiencing since their film was briefly pulled from its December 25th theatrical release.
