Comedian and actor Seth Rogen doesn’t appear to be spooked by North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s threat to treat the release of Rogen’s latest movie mocking the leader as "an act of war," media analyst and Left Coast Report editor James Hirsen said on Newsmax TV's "America's Forum."

"The studio is celebrating because it gets this publicity," Hirsen said, noting that Rogen has taken to Twitter to announce that "people don't usually want to kill me for one of my movies until after they paid $12 for it." The movie is called "The Interview."

North Korea’s state-run press service issued a statement that if the U.S. government did not stop the movie’s release, set for October, North Korea would retaliate "mercilessly."

The film, also starring James Franco, involves a comedic plot to assassinate Kim. Hirsen said that "if the character was maybe a Muslim leader, since the administration is used to blaming video footage, they might just ban it."
