Hustler is Making a Porn Parody of ‘The Interview’

After the much publicized North Korean hacking and subsequent threats that forced Sony to pull The Interview from its theatrical release and into film limbo, everyone has chimed in and given their two cents on how Sony should have handled the situation. Even President Obama though they were setting a bad precedent by caving to the hackers’ demand.

We can not have a society where some dictator someplace can start imposing censorship in the United States,” Obama said at his annual year-end news conference. “That’s not who we are. That’s not what America is about.”

Well, just leave it to another equally relevant, true national icon to answer to North Korea’s threats in the most American of ways: A porn parody.

Ladies and gentlemen, cue Larry Flynt.

The outspoken publisher and Hustler’s big honcho announced the company’s plans to produce an adult film parody called This Ain’t the Interview XXX, which will also follow two civilians enlisted by the CIA with plans to assassinate the North Korean dictator.

If Kim Jong-un and his henchmen were upset before, wait till they see the movie we’re going to make,” Flynt told Entertainment Weekly. “I’ve spent a lifetime fighting for the First Amendment, and no foreign dictator is going to take away my right to free speech.”

Flynt may be perceived by some as a sleazy opportunist — and in all fairness, that’s part of his charm — but his long and frequent legal battles to defend sexual content against the ridiculous obscenity laws of the 1970s and 1980s made him one of the most ardent defenders of the constitution’s First Amendment. His well-documented trials established him as a groundbreaking figure when it comes to free speech in the United States, and his story was immortalized on film, being played by Woody Harrelson on Milos Forman’s The People vs. Larry Flynt.

The production will begin in early 2015, and it should be out not long after that, because, well… it’s porn.

Will This Ain’t the Interview XXX be as funny as the original film was supposed to be? It’s unlikely. The production value is significantly inferior. But really, can you put a price on freedom of speech?

Also, who knows, James Franco might be up for acting on this one, too.
